Karen Pryor Fish Training Video

Here is a video of Karen Pryor training her big Oscar.

Notice she's using a stick as a target for the fish to follow, and a small flashlight as the conditioned reinforcer ('clicker' equivalent), along with food reward (a snail) as the unconditioned reinforcer.

Karen is a pioneer in the field of animal training. But this trick isn't very exciting - just following a stick moved outside the tank. In fact, fish will do it naturally, without any training.

Fish training is simpler, faster and more effective using the feeding wand we've developed as part of the new Fish School Training Kit.
