All this human instinct stuff and Pavlovian conditioning is well and good, you might say, but what does it mean in the real world? Is it really important to know about broom whacking? How can the timing of my warning change the effect of the whack? To illustrate the use of this knowledge, let’s look at the standard tool of dog training – the choke chain. A choke chain is designed to quickly constrict around a dog’s neck. This unpleasant experience is intended to teach the dog not to pull. As the dog walks next to his owner, he is jerked swiftly if he gets out of position. This is the same as the simultaneous broom whacker. The dog has no warning of the jerk and no information about timing that would mark the instant of his transgression. The dog’s behavior will change based on the exact instant that the chain was jerked. Only a person who jerks many dogs will be able to apply the correction with perfect timing. The average pet owner will not be effective with this method. Either the owner ends up jerking the chain forever, or the dog winds up strangling himself in a continuous pulling match. The advice of the professional trainer cannot instantly give a person perfect timing. To be effective, the hobbyist needs some sort of advantage over the trainer’s many hours of experience.

When they go out of whack, all sorts of problems ensue. Thyroid imbalances consist of too little thyroid hormone produced, a condition called hypothyroidism, or too much, called hyperthyroidism. Fortunately, hypothyroidism usually responds to veterinary treatment. The outcome for hyperthyroidism depends on other factors.
