Related to Split the [behavior] Tag? , but not specific to splitting the behavior tag. This is a more thought-out proposal, with backing evidence.
Someone asks a question about stopping or preventing a behavior or action. It inevitably gets tagged either or both "behavior" and "training".
There are general questions about animal behavior.
- Why is my one dog's hobby chewing my other dog's fur?
- Can cats get depressed?
- Is blinking slowly at cats a way to tell them that you love them?
There are general questions about training (includes "trick training", which is not its own tag):
- Is corporal punishment an effective training method for dogs?
- How do I crate train an adult dog?
- How hard will it be to train my parrot to talk?
- How to train a kitten to climb tail-first down a tall climbing tree?
- What should I start with when training a cat to do tricks?
We have toilet-training
We have leash-training (one example of many)
And there are questions intended to stop or prevent a behavior. They tend to be tagged both "behavior" and "training". These regard non-existent tag behavioral-training:
- How can I train my cat to not jump on the kitchen counters?
- How can I train a dog to behave with a cat?
- How can I train my guinea pigs to not attack one another?
- How do I train a puppy not to bite?
- How do I get my dog to stop stealing socks?
I think creating a "behavioral-training" (or similar; "training-behavior") tag and removing "behavior" and "training" tags from these questions (unless truly needed to embellish them) would help properly classify these "how do I stop this behavior" questions.
