[Taz] Animal Profile
[Tags | Taz]
[Hi- This is a fantastic tool! I will be behind in posting just a bit - I have a touch of pneumonia, so that is impacting the training, but hopefully will be back on my feet as soon as possible! With Taz, I work Sue Ailsby's Training Levels, agility, freestyle, obedience and rally.]
ANIMAL'S NAME [Taz]( Read more...Collapse )
Birth Date: [Oct.2001]
Behaviors Under Stimulus Control
Here include a list of behaviors your animal knows that are already under Stimulus control. Karen Pryor provides a good list and description of how to determine if a behavior is truly under stimulus control.
1. The behavior always occurs immediately upon presentation of the conditioned stimulus (the dog waves when told to)
2. The behavior never occurs in the absence of the stimulus (during practice, the dog never waves spontaneously).
3. The behavior never occurs in response to some other stimulus (the dog does not sit when you say wave)
4. No other behavior occurs in response to this stimulus (the dog does not wave when you say sit)
Behaviors under Successive Approximation
Here list a list of the behaviors you are still shaping. Do not list behaviors here that are not 100% reliable, this list will most likely be much longer than your SC list! If your dog has a good stay but will still break it occasionally, it belongs here!
[TBA - This is what I get for flying with a sinus infection!]
Here list your daily or weekly training routine, if you don't have one, make one! Training should for the most part be regular and consistent. Also track inevitable inconsistencies that may help you put your thumb on behavioral problems.

And if you are interested, here is a good template for session logs. Included are small graphic rating paws that I use, and you are welcome to use them if you want! However, the use of the rating paws or the template itself is certainly not required.
