This short video shows a behavior being shaped in a rat using a clicker and some tiny treats. I begin by clicking for any interest in the hoop (not shown, but only about 30 seconds of training). I then move to clicking for interest to the inside of the hoop. Then head inside the hoop. Then one foot, then two. Then she walks through the hoop. When she becomes more fluent with walking through the hoop, I will begin to raise it to teach her to jump through it.
