This DVD goes over the in’s and out’s of training back chains and discusses a few non- traditional back chaining concepts. You will learn what back chains are and why you should use back chaining. If you have tried to learn how to back chain in the past, but felt it was too confusing, then you will love this DVD. The goal is to teach you how to train using back chains in a simple understandable way. If you have been training back chains for years and would like a new perspective with new ideas on how to train back chains then this DVD would benefit you as well. You will learn important concepts such as: Verbal/Visual Cues, Stimulus Control, Variable Reinforcement Schedules, Rewarding in Position, Repetition, Adding Criteria, Fluency, Premack Principle, Anticipation, Using Extra Cues, Fading Cues, Proofing, Systematic Learning and Conditioned Reinforcers. Knowing and understanding these concepts will help you be successful when training and building back chains. The behaviors taught in this DVD range from tricks (clean up your toys, go to the crate and close the crate door, and much more), dog sports (canine freestyle routines, disc dogging routines, flyball, agility contacts, weave poles, rally and more), to real world behaviors (no jumping on people, going inside the house, getting in the car, etc) with step by step instruction on the process to back chaining each one. You will find training back chains to be easy and fun with Pamela Johnson’s DVD.
