teach a paw target, Part two: Adding a Cue
In last week’s featured video, KPA CTP Michelle Wieser and her dog Timber demonstrated how to teach a paw target. By maintaining a high rate of reinforcement, very quickly Michelle was able to teach Timber to hit the Staples Easy Button with his paw. In the second video of this series, Michelle demonstrates how to add a verbal cue to this behavior!
Michelle begins by remaining quiet and clicking and treating a few times until Timber is hitting the button with a paw consistently. Immediately before Timber is about to hit the button again, she introduces the verbal cue “button.” Michelle then clicks and treats when Timber responds correctly.
