Distractions as cues, day 6

Session 1, breakfast in location 2:

Hot dog chunks for “Get it” and the click, and then just a release to the pile of kibble. In this clip, I also explain what makes location #2 extra challenging: the intermittent neighborhood cat!

Session 2, dinner in location 2:

I explain why I’m leaving the plastic bag (the bag that held the kibble) out there with the food: for better visibility. And I reiterate why it is so important that the new cue (the visual/olfactory stimulus of the kibble) precede the old cue (the recall). I’m using hot dogs for the click and “get it” again.
