This course is dedicated to getting the highest level of fluency in our behaviors by getting geeky and diving deep into each training session.
How do we do that?
The short answer is: We focus on behavior. Both ours, and our learnes behavior.
We are going to analyze everything in the session, both from the handlers position and timing, to everything the dogs does.
So I will emphasize,- this course is geeky, and it is a good thing, if you are prepared to use quite a lot of time, of practicing using the schedules, and being comfortable with just focusing on behavior.
You will, as a premium participant, be asked to fill out quite a few schedules ad homework, to get comfortable with them.
Analyzing our sessions to this degree can be slightly scary and seem overwhelming in the beginning.
Luckily, as with anything else, the more we practice doing it the right way, the more fluent in behavior we become.
And what we leave this course with, is very fine-tuned observation skills, that will help us in the future. Both when we want to improve our own sessions, and also if we are helping someone else.
Having practiced your observational skills, takes you a big step towards being a favorite training partner.
In this course, we will work on a few specific behaviors that you would like to have perfected. You can chose some, or I can suggest some. This course is not about teaching as many behaviors as possible - that is the "Off cue- off control" course. Here, we dive much deeper into fewer behaviors. We work with the learner offering the behavior off cue and perfecting it, till we have the behaviors freakishly fluent.
This is a course where there is going to be a significant amount of work, taking data, and reviewing the videos from every session, again and again. We use a lot of benchmarking schedules to track the progress, and you will learn how to take your training to the next level with this tool.
This course covers:
Self-study course! Auditors only! (No premium spots in this course)Positive reinforcement training is about setting up for success and making sure desired behaviors are followed by reinforcers, which strengthen the behavior in the future. In this course you get to join the Swedish duo Eva and Emelie as they zoom in on the small but important details that make up a training session, from one reward to the next. What happens right after each reward? What happens within your reward procedure? And why does it matter? In "Seamlessness - from one reward to the next" you will learn learn how to work deliberately with small but significant details, paying attention to all the parts of the training loop and using them to create seamless training sessions. The material in this course will help you develop your own training sessions further. Your planning will get better, your training will become smoother, and both you and your learner will enjoy the process even more than before! Course syllabus: Week 1 Lesson 1 - Introduction to the course Lesson 2 - The underpinnings Lesson 3 - From one reward to the next - overview Week 2 Lesson 4 - Training session fundamentals Lesson 5 - The reward ends Week 3 Lesson 6 - Criteria Lesson 7 - Mark Week 4 Lesson 8 - The reward appears Lesson 9 - Take the reward Lesson 10 - During the reward Week 5 Lesson 11 - The reward ends (again) Lesson 12 - Criteria not met Week 6 Lesson 13 - Putting behavior together Lesson 14 - Flowcharting your training session Lesson 15 - Summarizing seamlessness This is a 6 week self-study course. New lessons will be presented each week (a total of 15 lessons) and you will have continued access to the material after the course finishes. We have so much material we wish to share with you on this topic - in this course, we put it together in a comprehensive yet extensive form. Our goal is to provide you with a lot of information and ideas from which you can extrapolate the aspects you currently wish to work with in your own training. The course is auditors only, allowing you to digest the material at your own pace and consider how it relates to your own training. There will be follow-up courses with practical training and feedback from us, we just wish to have everyone on the same page first... There are so many aspects to consider - it literally takes us six weeks to get from one reward to the next!
As an expert in the animal field, Lisa Longo brings here a first approach on how to modify human behavior, one's own human behavior. The course evokes the different main concepts of procedures in applied behavior analysis. Examples and definitions are appreciated for their accuracy and simplicity. I recommend this course for novices and those who want to deepen certain notions! Alexandra Lecestre, BCBA psychologist (www.ba-eservice.info)Syllabus : Week 1

What is the choice in the animal training world? Can we teach choice? What does it look like?
We all say the choice is essential in training, but what do we really mean by that? What does it mean for our dog, cat, or horse?
This course will introduce the concept of choice to you and your animal. We will focus on the scientific approach to the idea but also practical application throughout our work with animals.Have you considered your dog fragile, delicate, shy, quick to stuck, or quit the work? Do you struggle with your dog's motivation? He is not the working type? Doesn't have enough drive? This course is just for you! We will unpack all the labels, operationalize, and change the environment to influence your learner's behavior. For six weeks of online learning, we will add choice behaviors to start a training session and learn how to monitor it throughout our work.
During this course, we will focus on:
In this course, you can work with multiple animals within the weekly time frame (twelve minutes of video submission per week).This course is multispecies friendly! You can join with any animal you wish!
Attention Please is a prerequisite course to join as Premium Student.
This course will dive deeper into the topic of shaping behaviors for beginners and advanced students. We started this journey during "Shaping inside out" Webinar, and now we are going to geek out into six weeks of practical work.The course will cover:
This course is designed to create the necessary building blocks for effective communication between you and your dog.

On completion of working through the exercises and lessons you will have a strong, solid base to progress you and your learners training from.Essential Foundation Behaviours is suitable for dogs of any age, stage and can be an important refresher to assist overcoming any training glitches you may encounter. These foundation behaviours form the basis of a successful training future. Also, are required to be solid in order to accomplishing desired results. You will learn how to apply behaviour theory in a practical manner through positive reinforcement methods to build a stock of functional behaviours. Use this course as the first stage of your training journey, or a review of your current situation to reinforce the foundations you have already began. Plus, you will learn the ability to review and improve on the work you carry out with your canine companion.

Self-study course, auditors only (no premium spots in this course), with extensive material including step-by-step exercises for you to practice with your learner!Through start button behaviors, we can give our learning partners control over various procedures by having them tell us when to go ahead and when to stop. This course will serve as an introduction to understanding and working with start button contingencies. You will learn how to structure your training sessions to include clear yes and no opportunities, and we will dive into the concepts of choice and control and begin incorporating start button behaviors in various settings. Learn these techniques and you’ll be able to take another giant step towards a place where you and your animal are true partners in the training process! Course syllabus - these are the lessons we'll go through in this six week course:
The arrival of a new baby is a huge lifestyle change for humans....and also for the dogs we live with. In the UK behavioural problems related to the addition of a new baby to a family is one of the top 3 reasons that dogs are surrendered for rehoming.
But some preparation and simple training before the baby's birth can prevent problems arising and set everyone in the family – human and canine – up for success.
Over the course of 6 weeks we'll discuss a range of issues including –
The course will include practical exercises and assignments each week.
This course is for you if you are an expectant parent (or grandparent) with a dog, or are living with dogs & young babies or are a professional trainer working with family dogs.
Preparation in advance – more success, less stress![s3mm type="video" files="TromploPromo.mp4" /]
Training is a skill we need to learn. Teaching animals is not magic, nor common sense. It's a combination of science and practical skills we need to master. Don't worry if you don't know where to start! I have prepared this course for you. It will guide you through the foundations of training. Step by step journey for anyone wishing to learn more!
Too often, we end up in a position of being teacher and learner at the same time, because we hadn't had a chance to work on our mechanics, clicker skills, delivery patterns before we started working with our learners.
This course is a compendium of knowledge and practice for animal trainers. Focusing on the scientific approach to animal training we will cover ABA (applied behavior analysis) principles and how they resonate with what we do with animals, we will cover the mechanics and techniques of teaching behaviors! It's a perfect place to start your training journey, but it is also an appropriate course for more advanced students who want to geek in the depths of thoughtful training. Get ready for discussions, practical exercises, and thorough insight into the animal training world.
Throughout six weeks of online learning, we will cover:

Why would you choose online learning?
As one of our students said, "With online learning, you can choose your own time to train. Also, I think online learning gives opportunities to share more of the better quality knowledge at the same price as seminars. There is no necessity to use mental shortcuts, labels, or generalization because everyone has more time to process the knowledge."
