Visual vs olfactory learning

Recommended Posts

Am at very beginning of training Tadaaki to play tic tac toe. 

First challenge: taking just one treat from paper sheet holding many treats. 
Success was sporadic; often frustrating with much growling. 

Discovered that ordering Tadaaki to “Look!” helped a lot. Now making good progress. 


He is a very olfactory-driven dog, trusting nose over eyes. Makes sense: harder to count treats by smell than with eyes.  Also human dyslexics often are restricted to one sense modality, eg either reading or listening but not both are impacted.
