Target: Something the animal is taught to touch with some part of his body. A target is generally stationary. A Target stick is a mobile target the animal is taught to follow. Target sticks are often used as lures to shape behavior.

Temporary criteria: Criteria that are stepping stones to a final behavior that won’t, in their current form, be present in the final behavior. Temporary criteria should be trained only to about 80 percent reliability before “making it harder.” If a temporary criterion is reinforced for too long, the animal may be reluctant to change its behavior.

Tertiary Reinforcer: A cue for behaviors your dog knows and enjoys performing which increases the performance of the desired behavior. http://paws4udogs.wordpress.com/2012...forcer-anyway/

Timing: The timing of the clicker. Ideally, the click should occur at exactly the same instant the target criterion is achieved. Timing is a mechanical skill and requires practice. The trainer must be able to recognize the behaviors that precede the target behavior in order to click at the very moment the target behavior occurs.

Traditional training: Compulsion training. Traditional training is characterized by modeling or luring to get the behavior, and the use of negative reinforcement and positive punishment to proof it.

Training session: Either a pre-set period of time devoted solely to training, or pre-set number of repetitions. Either the duration of the session or number of repetitions can be decided in advance. Criteria should remain constant during a single session. At the end of a training session, the trainer evaluates the animal’s progress and decides whether to make the next session harder or stay at the same criteria.

Trigger: Also known as an "antecedent" or a preceding occurrence, cause or event. Used to describe events or stimulus to which your dog may react excessively to.

Trigger Stacking: The process by which multiple triggers are experienced in close succession, thus combining or "stacking" and resulting in a more intense or extreme reaction than if the dog only faced an individual trigger.http://reactivechampion.blogspot.com...s-bathtub.html

V

Variable interval: A schedule of reinforcement in which the trainer reinforces desired behavior after varying periods of time within a certain timeframe.

Variable ratio: A schedule of reinforcement in which the trainer reinforces desired behavior after varying numbers of “correct” responses.

Variable schedule of reinforcement (VSR): Technically, either a variable interval or variable ratio. However, most trainers use VSR to mean a variable ratio.
