The Magic of Shaping: Explore the Possibilities
Pam Dennison

Shaping is incredibly fun to teach; however, sometimes the mechanics of getting started can be daunting. While completing a behavior is very exciting, the real thrill is the process itself. From the first glimmer of understanding to the light bulb fully on, each step is a joy to behold. With shaping, your timing and creativity will improve, you will become better at recognizing small approximations and learn how and when to raise criteria (or when not to raise criteria), when to try something different, when to end a particular session, and when to keep going. You and your dog will become a more close-knit team while pursuing these fun and functional behaviors.

User friendly instructions are demonstrated with "real" dogs and their handlers, showing the process of working through each of 21+ versatile behaviors:

*Wipe your feet
*Muzzle training
*Grind toenails
*Close a door
*Go around objects
*Go Outs
*Weave poles
*Ride skateboard
*Nose target hand
*Say your prayers
