shaping- operant conditioning procedure in which behavior is guided closer and closer towards a behavior.


I like dogs and I’ve owned a dog for 2/3 of my life, but I’ve never had to train one. The first dog (Sparky) ran away when I was four and the second (Sunshine) we got from a friend who had recently found him wandering around as a stray. Sunshine was two years old and he had been trained by his previous owners.
