    How To Teach Your Dog a Solid Recall  

    presented by  Alexandra Santos


    PPAB 1.5, IAABC 1.5, KPA 1.5, CPDT 1.5

    Many dog owners don't give their dogs much freedom to run loose, because they're afraid the dog won't come back when called. It's a fact that, the moment the leash is removed from the dog's collar, we immediately enter into direct competition with the environment - the dog is free and thus can make choices between interacting with the environment or something in it and coming to us when called. It is also a fact that we often, inadvertently, train "stubbornness" and reinforce non-compliance with the recall cue.

    This webinar will teach dog owners how to train a solid recall by avoiding common mistakes, following some basic rules for success, choosing the right reinforcers, and providing the correct consequences for compliance and for non-compliance.

    Webinar Objectives

    • A brief overview of respondent conditioning
    • A brief overview of operant conditioning
    • David Premack's principle; reinforcer sampling; jackpot
    • Main reasons why dogs fail the recall
    • Common mistakes while teaching the recall
    • Basic rules for teaching a solid recall
    • The solid recall step by step
    • When and how to put the recall on an intermittent schedule

    Presented by Claudia Estanislau

    CEUs PPAB, 1.5. IAABC, 1.5. CCPDT, 1.5.

    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.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Clarify the meaning of the technical term Classical/Respondent Conditioning
    • Give and demonstrate practical examples of the use of Classical Conditioning
    • Talk about the magnitude of what we can achieve using Classical Conditioning
    • Understand why Classical Conditioning is so effective when properly used

    About The Presenter

    Brittany began her dog walking business while she was attending UCSD. Before she knew it, she was walking 30 dogs/day. The last thing she wanted to do was work on the schedule, create invoices, and get back to customer requests. She felt like she was stuck on a hamster wheel of the daily grind.

    Brittany was on a search for years trying to find the right software solution. It was exhausting to come up empty handed. So, Brittany decided to set out and create a software that was a simple-to-use mobile business platform, Handlr.
