shaping and chaining

Storyboard Text

  • Stage 1 Classical Conditioning
  • Stage 2 Shaping
  • Stage 3 Shaping
  • **The dotted line indicates a treat being given from the trainer to the rabbit. To initially condition the rabbit every time the word bring is said the rabbit gets a treat and an association forms. (classical conditioning)
  • Stage 4 Shaping
  • The trainer adds a ball to the enclosure, when the ball is touched or played with the instructor will say the word bring and give a treat. (operant conditioning)
  • Slowly starting to chain the behaviours together
  • 1. When the instructor adds the ball to the enclosure she's says bring and, if the rabbit makes contact with ball he is rewarded with a treat. 2. Then if it is picked up in the rabbits mouth he gets a treat.
  • Full expression of Shaping and Channing
  • Slowly the rabbit begins to interact more with the ball when it is moved closer to the trainer he gets a treat, if further away he doesn't get one. The ball is placed quite close to the trainer.
  • The trainer slowly increases the distance that the ball has to brought to get a treat through many trials, where for each correct movement a treat is given.
  • As the trainer says bring and points at the ball that is dropped the rabbit will retrieve the ball and bring it to the trainer for a treat.
