Movie Myths: Jurassic World

The raptors of Jurassic World were portrayed as clicker trained.  However, the clicker training wasn't shown in an accurate light.  Did you know that the click should happen once and then be followed by the reward?

Just remember, a marker word or clicker should be timed when an animal is doing something right.  A true clicker trainer clicks minute changes in behavior and always rewards the click.  Multiple clicks without a reward, devalues the click.  So don't use Jurassic world as your clicker training example and make sure you pay attention in class ;)
