Targeting

Trainers use different techniques within the operant conditioning but, without a doubt, the targeting or use of the target, is one of the most known and used in animal training.

To put ourselves in context, we first need to know that targeting is the process of teaching an animal to touch or follow a target with some part of its body. Once this is known, the possibilities for training are endless.

KGS o Keep Going Signal

Silent training

When we talk about silent training, we find a concept unknown to many animal trainers; but nothing could be further from reality, since most of the time we use it in a more or less conscious way.

Bridge. Delfines

In our second article we talk about operant and classical conditioning, and this time we will explain in detail what bridge is, what types there are, and their relationship with both types of learning.

Operant conditioning and classical conditioning

To know how conditioning works, we must inevitably talk about two very significant people within what is learning and behavioral. The Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) and the American behavioral psychologist Burrhus Frederic Skinner (1904-1990)
