KAY LAURENCE CONFERENCE: The Significant Click
We can add value to our click through attention to what happens before the behaviour and the reinforcer to compliment that behaviour. A 1% difference may not seem very relevant or important but has a 100% impact on the student and in the result. We will develop the true meaning of the click. Everything is in the detail: small changes produce large differences.
This detailed attention will ensure the click becomes relevant, salient and very significant in our efforts to lead the learner to success.
KAREN PRYOR CONFERENCE: The Wonderful World of Clicker Training
I would talk about some of the scientific discoveries that have come out of clicker training. I would talk and show videos about all the amazing things people are doing with clicker training, including with zoo animals and horses and even a little on children and sports. I would explain how modern training differs from conventional training and why it is so powerful, scientifically. I would also give some personal stories.
Kay has lived intimately with many dogs over many years observing their daily interactions, their puppy rearing and sharing in their activities. They skilfully teach the art of living as a harmonious group and developing connection. This understanding and skill is shared through the new book Every Dog Every Day and the workshops where a consistent high quality of results with a range of different dogs and people is achieved.
With her passion for understanding dogs and her experience of teaching, Kay leads the way in developing practical techniques that will leave you with and a with great sense of personal achievement and connection to your dog.
