From One Reward to the Next: Get Seamless in Your Agility Training… and Beyond
The bottom line in positive reinforcement training is setting up for success and making sure desired behaviors are followed by reinforcers, which strengthen the behavior in the future. In this Session, Emelie and Eva go back to their roots in agility training. They dive deeply into making the best possible use of a reward-based paradigm, from one reward to the next.
The examples will be from agility, but the concepts are valid for all venues and all species. Attendees will learn how to work deliberately, with small but significant details, paying attention to all the parts of the training loop and using the parts to create seamless training sessions. This Session will help you develop your own training sessions. Your planning will get better, your training will become smoother, and both you and your learner will enjoy the process even more than before!
