This session will explore the ways in which human reason, emotion and empathy can interfere with training. We will examine common challenges to training presented by the human members of the household and explore positive behavior approaches to influencing human behavior to optimize effective interactions. Application of positive reinforcement for the humans is only one of many tools at our disposal. Reason, emotion, empathy, story and humor all have a role to play in improving the odds that the home based team can meet success in training.
