#turnonthesound! #adoptabledog Wendy tightens up her go-to-mat behavior after her trainer makes some self-corrections. These clips are presented chronologically from a 6-minute training session. ..... 1. Start of session. Note the way Wendy whips her body around as she gets into her Down on the mat. At this point Wendy is so excited that she isn’t quite in control of her own movements. Being in this state isn’t conducive to our learning task. The trainer rapidly feeds Wendy to keep her from rocketing off the mat. ..... 2. The trainer takes a #chillpill ! She drastically slows her feedback to inspire Wendy to slow down as well. (She speaks in a slightly lower and more sustained tone, draws out her movements, and even clicks more slowly.) Initially this is a little frustrating for Wendy, as revealed by her quick whine. ..... 3. But Wendy adjusts! The behavioral topography is much smoother: notice how much more cleanly she slips into her Down position on the mat, compared to the first video, and how she waits on the mat as the trainer reaches for the next treat. She will learn more in this slightly less aroused state. Keep a keen eye on your learner’s body language to optimize your training sessions! #forcefreetraining #positivereinforcementdogs #positivereinforcement #stationing #mattraining #markertraining #learningtheory #behaviorchange #dogislove #relax #chihuahuamix #chihuahuas_of_instagram #jrtmix #jrt #terriermix #terriersrock #trainingterriers #fosteringsaveslives❤️🐶 #fosterdogsrock #fosterdog #availabledog #adoptmetoday #adoptdontshop🐾 #redwoodcitydogs #bayareamutts #bayareadogs #menloparkdogs
