Those who know me will agree that I am very much a go with the flow person. What this means is while I create a plan, and have all good intentions to stick to it, its very likely that our time together will end up morphing as we progress and bounce of each others ideas an learning moments.
With all this in mind, here is the workshop outline:
Starting with the basics
Let’s chat concepts. Luring, shaping, capturing… so what’s the right method for each trick?
Is that all there is to it?
Feeeeeling the movement from the dog
Using training concepts to build behaviour
Turn on target
Go to mat
Building off Foundations
Now lets see where the basics can create a new behaviour, a BIGGER behaviour -
Hold item – bring item to me, close suitcase
Target leg – lift leg
Drop – Scratch
Go around – GOOOOO around something much larger
Turn on target – turn into heel
Shaping a chain behaviour
Multi dog tricks
