Skinner considered operant conditioning a science-based technology in the 1930s and 40s. In the 1940s and 50s, when Keller and Marian Breland brought Skinner’s technology out of the laboratory and applied it commercially, they described what they did as well thought-out principles, practices, and procedures, and based on data gathered while training thousands of animals of many species. Bob and Marian Bailey continued this work in the 1960s into the 1990s, and Bob alone to this day. In this one hour I will attempt to present the principles, practices, and procedures the Breland/Baileys learned from others and discovered themselves over more than seventy years and taught their trainers (Animal Behavior Enterprises), and others. These principles are at the core of my perhaps well known “Chicken Workshops.” I believe that applying basic principles to animal training can make training faster, more precise, and easier on both the animal and the trainer.
