That was just one of the behavior mods used to try and teach Rocco that objects other than socks are rewarding. In addition, I was trying to help establish other behavior, and therefore, thought patterns. When I saw Rocco for a recheck, I had the owners bring a dirty sock to appointment because I wanted to see if he could “touch it” without needing to go any further with it. Because of the risk of this, the owners were instructed not to do this at home and only with me in the hospital. Hhis response to the meds and everything else the owners were doing, was going to dictate if we needed to take a risky step in the behavior mod plan. Fortunately Rocco was doing so well, we did not need to. The owners were instructed NOT to ever have the touch it game include socks.
