Creative Ways to Tackle Tough Cases - How the Constructional Approach can make all the difference! A Shift in Paradigm: What Modern-Day Dog Training Looks Like Positive reinforcement isn't always positive. We don't want to leave the dog exposed to aversive situations longer than necessary. We want them to feel control over those aversive contexts as soon as possible to alleviate the stress the dog and their person feels. Animal welfare is the goal, and the way that we train is how to get there. In this webinar, you will learn how to analyze a behavior case and implement a plan based on the what the dog is after. And what the dog is after is what determines the function. When training, the type of approach selected can profoundly impact the training program produced. When taking a Constructional Approach, we don't require withholding reinforcement for errors or "problem behaviors," in fact, we reinforce everything! Programs that rely on punishment or extinction have no place since the focus is solely on building repertoires and never removing consequences for undesired behavior. This presentation will explore the five critical components of Constructional programs and their influence on modern training. We will explore these concepts through research cases studies.
