Shape it UP!

Have you heard of this mystifying technique that everyone seems to be talking about, but not sure what it is all about?  Have you tried to shape a behavior, but it just didn't seem to work?

Shaping can be used to teach nearly any behavior to any animal.  This mini-workshop is an introduction to shaping.  The basics behind the technique will be explained and working teams will start teaching the dogs a trick or two.  Teams will be introduced to the clicker and how it is used in shaping.  There will be exercises to develop the handler's timing and eye/clicker coordination

Limit 15 dog/handler working teams.  $40/dog  A handler can enter more than one dog

Limit 15 auditors $20/per person

Instructor:  Angela Silvestri, CTDI

Working teams need to bring a large quantity of high value bite soft easily swallowed without chewing size treats.  Exercises during the workshop may be very treat intensive.
