When training a dog, the first tools we think of are in the realm of operant conditioning; what the dog does produces an outcome. There is a whole other realm of learning that dog trainers need to know about; the learning that occurs classically! Classical conditioning is the effect that results when two stimuli are paired together. Using classical conditioning in dog training is a powerful type of learning that can help you change behaviours in profound ways, getting at the underpinning of motivation for canine behaviour. When you think like a dog trainer, you think both about what the learner has under his control, but also what he learns when he is not controlling aspects of his environment by understanding the use of classical conditioning in dog training.
