Are you new to clicker training? You may have heard the buzz words "operant conditioning" and "markertraining," but what does that mean in terms of practical dog training? Here's a crash course on clicker training, learning theory, and the laws governing how learning really works. You'll learn what you need to know about the underlying science in order to get out of the gate fast — or to get back on track. Kathy Sdao helps you understand why clicker training principles work and what the terms really mean—and she makes it fun! The following topics are addressed: What is learning? Classical vs. operant conditioning The ABCs of behavior Mumbo Jumbo and Terminology: What does it mean, and does it really matter? Quadrant Schmadrant Extinction (and I'm not talking about dinosaurs!) Event markers Cues and stimulus control Leash, clicker, and treats… but I only have two hands? Tips for making it work in the “real world” This Session is intended for new or less experienced clicker trainers.
