What is up with Reinforcement?

  1. I can usually see something useful in most videos, but I was underwhelmed by this one. It started out with defining the goal as clicking WHILE the head was lifting; yet for the first round (which seemed to take forever) the clicks only seemed to come when the head was up and eye contact (or something like) was being made. So of course at the end, when she was doing what she SAID she was going to do in the beginning, the rate of reinforcement improved. If, rather than tossing, she hand-delivered the treats to the dog, she would still get a head down while the dog swallowed and could probably raise the rate even more.
