What Is Latent Learning?
Calming Exercise & Latent Learning
Latent Learning Chapter 1-2
Have you ever seen an owner of a dog that can walk into home depot, off leash? An owner who can walk into the liquor store, while his dog waits patiently outside. Shows up at parties, and his dog is not a nuisance. When asked what trainer he hired, his response is…
“I've never trained this dog. He's just an old soul. He's always been that way.”
You might notice a homeless dog appearing to know how to cross the street while waiting for traffic or signal lights to change in order to reunite with his owner on the other side of the street. All while ignoring other dogs as they pass by. When you ask that person, how did you train your dog to do that?
They just look confused by your question. They respond, have no idea he's just always been that way.
There's a behavioral and scientific explanation for this. It's called Latent learning!
