Learn how to offer clarity to the dog, to help them better see and understand when to perform certain behaviors. Equally important, teach them when not to perform certain behaviors. Whether you want a dog that only shakes a paw when asked (instead of scraping your arm in repeated pestering attempts to get a cookie), or whether you want to create an environmental cue that applies across many situations (see someone approaching - move to heel) - a better understanding of how learning factors into stimulus control can give greater control over reinforced behaviors.
