Day 4



Today you will begin transitioning to placing the object your animal has been holding in its mouth into its stand or base you designed. Hopefully you have built up enough reinforcement history in the previous step that your animal is "targeting its mouth" to this object.  Essentially putting the object in its mouth is so reinforcing it seeks it out wherever it is. This will make it easy for your animal to align itself with your base or stand so you do not have to hold the object in your hands.

This also means making sure the height you have chosen for the placement of the object is appropriate.
