Live Episode 11


Teaching Consent for Medical Behaviors with Training Demonstrations

EPISODE 11: June 11, 2020

In this episode, Ken Ramirez and Chirag Patel discussed the many benefits of teaching an animal to indicate consent for participation in medical behaviors, including beginning steps with "The Bucket Game," and what things to look for as a sign of consent.  They explored setting up the environment for success, reinforcement strategy, and how to change your training plan when an animal chooses not to give consent.
Please note: There is an audio issue during the Training Challenge video.  We recommend you either mute the video during this time or advance the video ahead to the 12:55 mark.  The audio for the rest of the episode was not impacted.
