Abstract:

The acquisition and maintenance of detection and search task behaviors are accomplished with positive control techniques. The principal controlling reinforcer consequence used is food. The dog is permitted to behave freely in the work environment without coercion and with minimal restraint. The conditioned reinforcers are then used to obtain the fundamental skills, and odor discrimination. Training procedures are described.
