GREEN - The Thinking Dog (STF)

GREEN - The Thinking Dog (STF)

GREEN Class Focus - The Thinking Dog

A dog that runs up and SITS to greet you instead of jumping is a Thinking Dog!

A dog that can cope and not react when there are sudden changes in the environment is a Thinking Dog!

When dogs are taught a skill called “shaping” they become better problem solvers and will begin to think about how to earn rewards. Shaping behavior is simply a very easy and incredibly effective way to teach – it allows you to help your dog learn without having to use force or corrections.

This class will focus on the foundation of how to shape a behavior. Whether a dog is pushy or shy, bold or fearful, shaping will help them learn how to handle life’s stimulating or worrisome times and become more confident.
