Training Workshop: Shaping New Behaviors

  • Stylin Paws Salon & Day Stay 2180 NW 156th Street, Suite 105 Clive, IA 50325 (map)

Both simple and complex behaviors can be shaped by successive approximations until your dog reaches the goal behavior.  When your dog builds behavior slowly by performing baby steps along the way, he gains confidence and increases his problem-solving abilities.  In this workshop you’ll use the clicker to shape your dog to target a mat, and you’ll discover the amazing power of the “free shaping” technique, in which we step back and let the clicker do the talking.
