Karen Pryor, The new i-Clickâ„¢ and you at APDT. A lot of you will be at APDT. So will a lot of us. And there's a lot to do and see. Come to booth # 109. Drop in to say hi. We'd love to see you again or meet you for the first time.
Here a few things we wanted to remind you about
If you're attending APDT be sure to look for the discount shopping coupon in your bag for 15% off show purchases.
Plus, (assuming our supplies arrive on time!), we'll be giving away the first prototype samples of our next generation clicker- the i-Clickâ„¢. We're only bringing a few hundred so come and get them early. And let us know what you think. The new i-Click has been sized and shaped to fit smoothly and discreetly inside your palm. An all-new quick action trigger deftly responds to your touch helping you improve your timing. A new raised surface eliminates fumbling for the "right" side of the clicker to push. Finally, the i-Click has a quieter but familiar click -perfect for both those animals that are sound sensitive and those that aren't. The i-Click will be commercially available later in the fall.
Come see Karen! She will be presenting three times.
- The first is entitled Fading and Transferring Cues & Prompts which will address the issue of prompt dependency, how to avoid it and how to repair it as well as discuss how to sharpen cue response. Saturday at 12:30
- The second is entitled Clicker Tactics for Dogs in the Shelter Environment. Clicker training in the shelter environment is a new and increasingly popular tool for increasing both the manageability and the adoptability of shelter dogs. Many of the dogs that wind up in shelters have little or no life experience, much less any trained behaviors. They need to learn basic social and focusing skills; they need to learn to control themselves so that they CAN learn. Sunday at 10:30
- Finally, Karen and Ian Dunbar are keynoting the close of the program from 12:45-2:00 on Sunday in a plenary session.
