(Video 38) This Means That: How to To Add a Cue to Behavior

Cues like "Sit," "Down," etc. are how we ask for behavior (similar to commands but different, as you'll see in this video). Cues are signals that tell the dog that a specific behavior might earn a reinforcer. A cue can be anything the animal can perceive - hand signals, spoken words, random sounds, doorbell, scent, etc. This video will teach you how to add a cue to a behavior that your dog is already performing, as well as transfer from an old cue to a new cue. Watch my 4 Ways to Get Behavior video to teach them to do a behavior in the first place.
