Keeping Training Fun

50 Points

This badge signifies completion of the course Can Animals Get “Bored” with Training? AKA Keeping Training “Fun.

It is easy to fall into a routine of training specific behaviors over and over thinking that is what it takes to maintain them without checking in to assess, first of all if it is necessary and second how it is impacting the animals performance (fluency) and perhaps most important, the animals eagerness to emit the desired responses. This assent may deteriorate with redundancy of action, reinforcers, stimulus conditions, etc.  It can manifest in different observable responses from body language, latency, and even aggression. Our discussions came up with lots of ideas to combat “training fatigue” to keep the behaviors eagerly flowing.

This course takes about 1 hour to complete.
