Start button behaviors have been all the rage for quite some time now! You might have heard about them, but have you heard Emelie and Eva talk on the subject?

E&E came to think and use what they’ve chosen to call start buttons from their agility training some 20 years ago. The duo then brought start buttons with them into a broader and more general way of thinking about training and communication with their learners of many species, humans included. Can we create structures in our training that gives us as trainers information about how our learner is perceiving the training, making it easier for us to judge how we’re doing? Can we create a way to have more of a two-way communication? Start buttons are a way for us to receive information at every stage of training and perhaps living with our learners.

Join Emelie and Eva on a trip from the very beginning of start button thinking, learn about start button contingencies and also about what start buttons are not!

Eva runs Carpe Momentum together with her colleague Emelie Johnson Vegh. Their goal is to help people acquire knowledge and skills in science-based, modern, humane, and empowering teaching strategies for the benefit of learners of all species.

Eva has a master’s degree in behavior analysis and is a board member of the Swedish Association for Behavior Analysis, and works to connect the communities - teaching behavior analysis to animal trainers, and teaching animal training strategies to behavior analysts working with people. She is also active in building a Fear Free™ veterinary care community in Scandinavia, and is the initiator and host of the Scandinavian CCC conference (where the three C:s stand for Choice, Control and Communication) .

The Carpe Momentum colleagues teach seminars on the general principles of behavior and learning, as well as sport specific seminars, and coach trainers in the art of structuring great training sessions regardless of the venue or the species. Their book Agility Right from the Start was published by Karen Pryor Clicker Training (KPCT) in 2010. The book outlines Emelie and Eva’s philosophy and structured approach to training, making it a worthy read not only for agility enthusiasts.

”E&E” are part of the Clicker Expo faculty. In addition, they are the first TAGteach faculty in Europe and they introduced TAGteach to Scandinavia in 2005. They offer consultations and workshops about applying positive reinforcement based strategies with human learners in all imaginable areas. E&E have experience of a variety of venues, from teaching puppy classes to competing at top national levels in agility and obedience (with several dogs of various breeds) and have been working together since 1998.
