Because the rate of dog bite injuries to children is somewhat higher than to adults, the actual risk often becomes exaggerated in peoples’ minds. This presentation will examine what is known about the risk of injury from dog bites and the kinds of interactions between dogs and children thought to be common to bite incidents.
Ways to frame messages about safe interactions with dogs to emphasize empathy building rather than fear will be presented. This includes situations that are likely to make dogs feel the need to defend themselves and the “please don’t make me bite you,” signals that can result.
Janis Bradley is the author of Dogs Bite, but balloons and slippers are more dangerous, the complete guide to research on dog bites, along with Dog Bites: Problems and Solutions for The Animals and Society Institute, and The Relevance of Breed in Selecting a Companion Dog for the National Canine Research Council. Between 2000 and 2009, Bradley trained more than 400 professional pet dog trainers at the San Francisco SPCA’s Academy for Dog Trainers, and in 2011 founded the Dog Training Internship Academy. Bradley is the Director of Communications and Publications at the National Canine Research Council, a think tank whose mission is to support and distribute the best current science studying domestic dogs in the context of a human environment. She has spoken at numerous professional conferences. She lives in Camarillo California with her rescued Greyhound.
Respondent Conditioning, also known as Classical Conditioning or Pavlovian Conditioning, consists of the pairing of stimuli. Neutral stimuli can be paired and offered a meaning and emulate emotional responses (positive or negative ones).
Techniques based on this type of conditioning are very effective in producing conditioned responses and are often used in conjunction with operant conditioning (actually the two seem somewhat intertwined). They are used in techniques which are extremely successful for behavioral modification.
In this in depth webinar, we will go over the meaning of classical conditioning and how it can be used. We will be taking a look at the basics but we will also learn about higher order classical conditioning and the ways in which it can be used. By the end of the webinar, you will not only be talking like a pro but more importantly, acting like one! You will understand when Respondent Conditioning is taking place as well as how, when and why you should implement responding conditioning into your training plans.
