This course is dedicated to making you an expert in backchaining.

You will leave this course with a desire to back chain everything you can, and have gotten very comfortable with splitting everything into behaviors to perfect.

Some sessions are dedicated to the topic of cues, where we will look deep at, why some cues are like shooting an arrow, and others are more like pushing a car, up hill. We will also discuss the topic of off cue behaviors, having fluency, and very good stimulus control.

Backchaining is one of those things, that be, and seem very simple. But only when you dive a bit deeper into the subject and start realizing what it actually is that happens, and how every single thing we do in the process effects the chain, we will get the full advantages of using it.

We will:

  • go through the pros and cons of backchaining
  • Briefly touch base on forward chaining – but we are not going to spend a lot of time on that
  • Have lessons on off cue behaviors, and if thats a good thing to have
  • Go through the process of adding cues to already fluent behaviors
  • Make the cue a green light for performing the behavior.
  • Dissect the cues, if there are learning history that gives slower responses
  • Find out what is brutally exposed, when we’re backchaining.
  • Figure what the glue is, that make chains so strong
  • Dive into the double effect of each behavior (R+ for previous cue AND green light to the next)
  • Exercise backchaining in everything we do
  • Discuss the optional response to a mistake in a chain
  • Go through the testing phase
  • Discuss the difficult job that is, being the handler
  • Practice without dogs too

This course is most suited for teams that already have good solid fluency behavior and also at least 3 reliable cues, that has been learned  with positive reinforcement.

You can participate if you want to work with fun chains that you can use around your house, with tricks or with competition exercises. The most important thing is, that youre willing to spend 6 weeks of your life, learning about backchaining.
