What Is Extinction, In Canine Behaviour Terms?

Why might a dog's behaviour get worse before it gets better? Because they are experiencing an extinction burst. The team extinction refers to purposefully and consistently preventing reinforcement of unwanted behaviour until the dog stops offering the behaviour, i.e. that behaviour is then extinguished. So, it occurs in dog learning when a reward no longer occurs when the unwanted behaviour is presented. This workshop covers extinction in detail. We also consider why and when it occurs and how we can get beyond it with positive behaviour modification and understanding.

Join Anna Jane Brehaut to study the presence of extinction within canine behaviour and what we can do about it.
