Description

This course is the second in a two-course sequence that introduces the student to advanced animal training strategies and the implementation of training plans. This second course explores chaining in greater depth, providing guidance in all components of implementing a chaining plan. It begins with a detailed analysis of the chaining process, constructing and validating task analyses, describes how to train component behaviors and how to bring each under the appropriate stimulus controls, resulting in a behavior chain exhibited by a single trainer-provided cue. The course covers both forward and backward chaining procedures and under what conditions each is most suitable. This course requires access to a companion dog for engaging in training exercises. Analysis of chaining process Constructing and validating task analysis Assessment of levels of proficiency of requisite behaviors Training compound behaviors Forward and backward chaining procedures Chain quality
