What is an example of a learned behavior?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Show a dog a treat, say "Sit," then put the dog in a sit position. Give the dog the treat. Continue this training. The dog will learn in short order to sit on command, whether or not a treat is offered. There are five types of learned behavior.

It really depends on what type of behavior you're referring to, but if you don't mind me being vague, here are some examples: chewing with your mouth closed, saying excuse me when burping or bless you when sneezing, being polite and using good manners, putting your seat belt on in the car, or going to bed at a decent time.

One example of a learned behavior is a child throwing a temper tantrum - they have learned that if they do this, they will get what they want.
