Hood Training with Negative Reinforcement


This lesson covers hood training using negative reinforcement.

Casino is perhaps one of the most difficult birds I have ever hood trained, and I’m glad we videoed it for this course. One year into his training, we are careful to keep his hooding to a minimum of trainers, as the slightest variations at this point will make it difficult to keep his behavior on point.

We do recommend with this behavior especially keeping it to one or two trainers until it is fluent, as it requires mechanics, timing, and consistency to ensure success.
