Have you heard before the concept of NEPOPO? NEPOPO®: This is a method developed by renowned trainer Bart Bellon, using negative reinforcement together with positive reinforcement. It is an extremely effective method of training and uses very low levels of electric collar stimulation applied as a command is given (-ve NE), the stimulation is continued until the dog performs the behaviour (+ve PO), once the behaviour is performed, the dog is rewarded (+ve PO). So the dog is essentially reinforced twice for the behaviour, once by the cessation of the stimulation, and then again by the reward. Let me know what you think about this Concept.
Have heard before the Concept of LIMA? LIMA is an acronym for the phrase “Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive”. LIMA describes a trainer or behaviour consultant who uses the least intrusive, minimally aversive strategy out of a set of humane and effective tactics likely to succeed in achieving a training or behaviour change objective. Let me know what do you think about this Training Concept.
