Question by Derrick P: Psychology “shaping” procedure question.?
Design a “shaping” procedure to teach your dog to “touch his bowl” with his nose to signal that he is hungry! Start with the dog in your kitchen with an empty bowl. Your training program should include the separate steps most likely to produce the “target” behavior (nose touches bowl) in the dog.

Answer by Jorge M
You start off by depriving the dog of food for about a day. This way you know the dog is hungry. Then you would reinforce the dog looking at the bowl. Next you would reinforce its head coming close to the bowl. And finally, you would only reinforce the “terminal behavior” of touching the bowl.
