training in a club of canine obedience Hypothetical constructs – constructs are a particular kind of label that goes beyond simple description of observable behaviors into the realm of hypothetical (one would say pseudo – science) explanations for why an animal behaves as it does.

The cause of behavior is found in CONTEXTS, not in animals. There are always conditions on which behavior depends. Therefore changing conditions changes behavior.

A concept “construct/label” cannot cause behavior because it has no tangible form. Cannot be measured.
