Secondary Reinforcer

A Secondary Reinforcer is a conditioned reinforcer that gets it’s value from it’s proximity to a Primary Reinforcer.

The “primary reinforcers” in the game of disc are Bite and Chase, and Secondary Reinforcers can include Drop, Give, Next, and certain Set Up Moves.

Secondary reinforcers can be leveraged and used as cookies as long as they continue to be paired with or lead to primary reinforcement.
