Back chaining has been shown to be of value in many disciplines, including teaching of language, mechanical skills to employees, sport skills to athletes, and both simple and complex skills to autistic children, to name a few. In this session registrants will learn how to apply this valuable tool to dog training.
Speaker: Julie Flanery, BS, CPDT-KA, RFE-CI, back by very popular demand for the second webinar for us, is the owner of Wonder Dogs, in Philomath, OR. Julie has been working professionally with dogs and their owners since 1995, focusing on the needs of the dog and forming a stronger relationship through clear communication and positive reinforcement training methods. She has placed Obedience, Musical Freestyle, Rally-Obedience, Rally-FrEe and Agility titles on her dogs. She uses back chaining to successfully train her dogs as happy partners in many activities.
We will discuss:
- What is a behavior chain
- What is a back chain
- Why back chaining in dog training aids in the learning process
- How back chaining helps acceptance of delayed reinforcement without degrading criteria
- How to apply the process of back chaining effectively
- Practical applications: behaviors or behavior chains that can benefit from back chaining
A question and answer session will follow this dogs and animal welfare webinar that will be moderated by Giovanna Rosenlicht, DVM
