Presented by Louise Stapleton-Frappell


Join Louise for this presentation in which she takes a look at the complexities of linear behavior chains!

The webinar will focus on a fun trick that is also a skill needed by many assistance dogs – How to fetch their guardian a drink - but, in learning about the components you will need to teach your partner so that he/she can carry out this behavior, you will also learn some strategies that will help you teach an amazing retrieve to hand!

You don't want to miss out on this fun-filled session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the differences between forwards chaining and backwards chaining
  • Understand how to maintain a consistent high standard of 'tricks' (behaviors)
  • Learn how to teach a retrieve to hand
  • Learn about the skills you will need to teach your training partner if you would like him/her to fetch you a drink from the fridge
