The Premack Principle

To use positive reinforcement effectively, a trainer must thoroughly understand what reinforcement is and how it functions. Often, we oversimplify this by equating positive reinforcement with a piece of food. While food can work quickly & well in many situations, it’s useless when a learner is satiated, or too frightened or aroused to eat.

Trainers sometimes refer to a dog’s “life rewards”: those everyday pleasures such as the opportunity to go outside, to sniff a tree, or to greet an approaching dog. These can be used to reinforce desired behaviors. This approach is similar to the Premack Principle but doesn’t fully take advantage of his revolutionary insights. Premack said much more than, “If you eat your vegetables, you can have dessert.”

Challenging behaviour in animals can range from inconvenient to embarrassing to exasperating - to the people who have to live with them. To the animals involved, those behaviours are often not problematic at all, but rather a solution to a problem that they're experiencing - and our task is often to help the animal find another solution that's less annoying to us - or to remove the animal's problem altogether.

This webinar will provide a framework for how to approach behavioural challenges.
