Dog helplessness training experiment.
3 groups of dogs in harnesses with access to a lever. 1 group received shocks which could be stopped with the lever, another shocked but the lever did nothing, and the last were not shocked. When moved into an area of shocks but which could be avoided by stepping over a small barrier, only the uncontrollable shocks group didn’t even attempt to discover the escape.
