Positive Reinforcement

Positive Reinforcement

A stimulus that increases the frequency of a particular behavior using pleasant rewards. A doggy treat can pleasantly coerce your new puppy to sit (positive reinforcement) just as a pull to the choke collar can achieve the same affect (negative reinforcement). The difference is that the positive reinforcer is pleasant, but make sure
you understand that both increase the frequency of the behavior!
