Even Shakespeare had trouble with his dog. He called Korrect Kritters.
He was so happy with our services, he wrote this sonnet.
When Chaos attends ev’ry waking hour,
With still more barks and howls all through the night,
It is enough to turn the sweetest sour,
When lack of sleep meets morning’s dawning light.
Your begging cannot produce harmony,
For Spot, the dog, he knows who’s in the house;
Cooperation works like A-B-C,*
And better manners he will soon espouse.
That villain Chaos must needs meet defeat,
And Calm and Patience have to lead the way;
A good behavior? Here, my boy, a treat!
We both work hard so that we both can play.
Do you have troubles working with your pet?
Call Korrect Kritters, and you’ll be all set.
A fun informational video introducing the Behavior+ Works Behavior Toolkit, by James Fritzler and Susan Friedman, PhD. Part 1 helps assemble the right tools to teach new behaviors. Part 2 is a flow chart describing how to use the tools. Many thanks to team member Daniel Ladner for his movie making talents!
Behavior analysis is the scientific study of behavior. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of motivation and learning.
Behavior is anything an animal does that is observable and measurable.
Applied Behavior Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a siginificant meainingful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement.
