Description


Reinforcement is the key to successful training, as most trainers already know! However, there are many different reinforcement strategies and reinforcement options available to trainers: consistent schedules, variable schedules, life rewards, toys, play, food, treats, etc. The mythology around how various schedules of reinforcement work can mislead trainers into using a strategy inappropriately and lead to frustration for the animal and the trainer. Many trainers fail to approach new reinforcement strategies systematically, which can be the reason why certain strategies seem to fail. This class will explore both the science behind these concepts and successful methods for implementing different types of reinforcement into a training program. This is one of Ken's most popular seminars.
