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.

Training nights and weekends while working your “real job” Monday through Friday? A large percentage of highly skilled trainers continue to work part- or full-time jobs while training nights and weekends, contributing to trainer burnout and limiting the number of dogs’ and owners’ lives they can impact. It’s a pervasive belief in the our industry that trainers “can’t make real money” training full time. Fortunately this is simply not true; it really is possible to make a living doing what you love.
In this web seminar Veronica Boutelle of dog*tec will show you how to make your part-time or hobby business your full-time career. Learn how to assess the feasibility of going full time, grow your business into a reliable source of income, and create and implement a personalized transition plan for your move to full-time professional dog trainer.
Veronica is the founder of dog*tec, the dog pro industry’s leading business consultancy, through which she has been helping dog trainers help dogs since 2003. She is the author of How to Run a Dog Business: Putting Your Career Where Your Heart Is and the co-author of Minding Your Dog Business: A Practical Guide to Business Success for Dog Professionals, and writes on business topics for many dog training industry journals. Veronica is a sought-after speaker at conferences and dog training schools across the country and internationally. She has recently spoken to positive reinforcement trainers at conferences and seminars in countries as diverse as Chile, Australia, Spain, New Zealand, and the UK.
As former Director of Behavior & Training at the San Francisco SPCA, and as a dog training business owner before that, Veronica understands what it means to be a dog trainer first hand—the daily worries about everything from client compliance to financial security, the unique challenges of a “flexible” schedule that requires evenings and weekends, and the struggle to balance clients and training with the minutiae of running a business—and to balance all of that with a rich non-work life. Her background as a trainer, her business expertise, and her work as an educator put Veronica in a unique position to help professional dog trainers learn to become as skilled in business as they are as trainers—and that means more dogs’ lives touched by positive training.
