Efficiency of Verbal and Mechanical Markers for Training a Difficult or Simple Behavior in Pet Dogs

By Kaitlin Snider and Jessica Joniaux


Color poster with text, photographs, graphs, and tables.In behavioral science, a marker is a stimulus that closely follows a behavior. The marker is followed by a reinforcer (e.g., a food treat) and helps associate the behavior with the reinforcer. This study looked at the effectiveness of teaching dogs a simple behavior and a complex behavior with either a clicker, a verbal marker, or no marker.University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
