FE215: Simon Says Just Cue It

Instructor: Mariah Hinds

Course Details

Let's put some behaviors on cue and let's build fluency with those behaviors. We will go over how to put a behavior on cue whether it was lured, shaped or captured. We will go over getting a behavior on a verbal cue and off of a hand signal or body motion. We will go over how to change a cue, such as changing a cue from a verbal to a signal or from one verbal cue to a different cue. We will take a look at the mechanics of your cue or signal and make sure that the dog thinks the cue is what we intend the cue to be.

We will also go over building fluency for behaviors using fun methods. We will work on opposite cues and similar sounding cues to build fluency. We will also do some fun games to build fluency and help the dog generalize the cue to new environments and situations. We will also discuss criteria building and maintenance during this class.
