Description


Counter conditioning has become a mainstay behavior modification technique to help modify pet behavior. Discussions and instructions often center around operant versus classical counter conditioning, implying two different techniques. While the distinction has implications for implementation, are these really two separate processes or are they intertwined with each other? The answer is important because when counter conditioning “doesn’t work”, or owners complain because they aren’t seeing behavior changes in their pets in a timely manner, implementation errors are usually the reason. To use this powerful technique successfully, one must understand not only the technique itself, but also the processes of operant and classical conditioning that are the basis for counter conditioning.
