Location, Location, Location: Refining Behavior with Reward Location
Real estate agents know the power of “location.” Clicker trainers should understand and take advantage of the power of location as well. If you are interested in striving toward errorless learning, location strategies should be part of your training toolbox.
Positive reinforcement trainers use a variety of methods for reward delivery, depending on the goals for the behavior being trained. Styles of delivery can affect the learner in different ways; they can raise energy, promote stillness, reset for the next repetition, support a specific position, and more. Can the use of reward strategies take training even further?
In this Session, Michele shares her ongoing experiences applying reward strategies. Over the past eight years, Michele has discovered the power of using specific reward locations and deliveries for training and maintaining a variety of behaviors. Thoughtful location strategies support low-error learning sessions and rapid learning of even complex behaviors.
Michele will demonstrate training a variety of behaviors using specific reward strategies for each goal behavior. The results show how amazingly powerful a well-applied strategy can be and how it supports very fast learning. Behavior examples will include distance responses, challenging body poses, and a variety of trick behaviors.
Join Michele as she shares the available power of reward-location strategies and enlightening moments of discovery.
