GREEN - 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.
