Day 3



Today you will begin building reinforcement history for your animal placing its mouth on two items held together that will eventually be spaced apart.

This object does not need to be secured to a base or stand. In fact it can be better if it is not. As you build reinforcement history for the animal touching it with its mouth it becomes a target. This will be used to direct the animal into position when it is placed on the stand. 

Share your update in our private Facebook Group! This special pop up group is just for this behavior challenge. Here are some things you can do in the group:
