Conduct extinction extinction is the process that makes that a conditioned behavior stops occur when it is no longer rewarded. In other words: If you stop rewarding a learned behaviour, your dog will no longer run it. Imagine that you taught your dog to sit down when you give the sitting order. Give him a bit of meat everytime you feel, then he learns quickly. One day you decide to not reward such behaviour more and, after a while, your dog stops sit every time that you give the order.

As his conduct is no longer rewarded, your dog will have learned to not respond more to your order. The conduct of sitting down to order there will be extinguished. Reinforcement reinforcement is the process that increases the frequency of a behavior everytime he rewards it. It is the fact of rewarding your dog when it obeys an order or performing a behavior you want to encourage. Positive reinforcement is to make that something nice happen for your dog, at the same instant (or immediately after) that performs the desired behavior. For example, you say sitting and your dog sits.

If you give a little piece of meat at the moment sitting, you’ve positively reinforced the behavior of sitting down to order. Negative reinforcement is to stop something unpleasant happen to your dog, at the same instant (or (immediately after) that performs the desired behavior. For example, you push gently the rump (rear) of your dog down until he feels. If you stop pushing when he sits, you’ve reinforced the behavior sit through negative reinforcement. Positive reinforcement has several advantages over the negative. One very important is that you don’t need to physically dominate your dog. Another, no less important, is that you can easily remove the rewards at the same time that you avoid the extinction of learned behaviors. Timing timing refers to the time that passed since your dog emits a conduct until you give a reward. Dogs can easily associate behavior and reward when the time that passes between the two is short. Therefore, you must reinforce the behaviors of your dog as soon as possible. If you take too long to give the reward, you only confuses your puppy. Constancy to train your dog, you have to be clear and consistent. If for example, one day you leave is up to the Chair and another day prohibes you to do so, your dog will be confused. You might learn that you can upload to the Chair when you’re not. Perhaps get to thinking: my human is half crazy. Tomorrow I will try again, perhaps let me upload. Generalization of the conduct the generalization is the process by which your dog learns to obey your orders in different places and under different conditions. Imagine that your dog has learned to sit when she hears the sitting order. Did all learning sessions in the garden. If you tell him sitting when it is in a park you will you ignore. Yet to generalize learning. The generalization of your dog’s training is not easy, although it may take some time. You simply have to repeat some sessions of training in different places and situations. Keep in mind that you must first teach behaviors and then make the generalization. Not teach a new exercise in different places.
