TRAINING SESSION #15 – Getting Reliable Behaviors – Part 1
When the dog is experiencing competing motivations, the behavior displayed will depend upon which motivation is stronger at that time. Learning and motivation go hand in hand. Without motivation, learning the correct response may not occur. They key to remember is that behaviors can be taught, but are under the control of the dog’s emotional state at all times. There are two stages of learning. The first is the acquisition stage. The second is the maintenance stage. Pia will go over the key points to getting behaviors and making sure they are reliable in the next several training sessions. Can you get reliability? Of course, but how can you keep that behavior strong? Listen and find out!
