Over the years, the study of dog training and canine psychology have led to the continuous improvement of dog training techniques. Studies have shown that the most effective way of teaching dogs how to do certain tricks or how to behave themselves is through operant conditioning.

Operant conditioning is the process of teaching a dog that a certain behavior or action will yield a certain type or set of consequences. In other words, this teaching pattern follows the ABC of events or the Antecedent yields Behavior yields Consequences pattern. The Antecedent is the idea that prompts an individual or an animal to do a certain behavior so that he/she will yield consequences. Oftentimes, the antecedent is may be the fear of pain or the prospect of an opportunity or privilege. Thus, for dog trainings to be truly successful, dog trainers or dog keepers should effectively embed antecedents in their pets.
