Communication System for SAR K9 (Rules and Rewards) with Florian Schneider June 17

Communication System for SAR K9 (Rules and Rewards) with Florian Schneider
June 17 6:30PM

The following questions will be answered in this seminar: 

  • Reward vs. Reinforcer – what we really need! 
  • What are useful primary reinforcers, how can we excel their value for the dog? 
  • How can we integrate secondary reinforcers (markers / reward announcements) in a smart and effective way? • And why does it make sense to use a whole bunch of different possibilities of reward delivery to gain the best possible progress in dogtraining? 
  • How classical and operant conditioning play hand in hand focusing SAR K9 and detection training. • Getting better dogs in the two key behaviors of SAR dog work: Search behavior and TFR (SAR: Barking indication OR „bringslen“ / refind) 

The most important thing about the theory of learning, training methodologies etc. is a functional reward system. There  is no modern day dog training without powerful reinforcers.
