Advanced Clicker Skills: Shaping and Targeting

Video Description:

Ready to move into teaching more difficult or complex tricks or performance sport behaviors? Wanting to move beyond reliance on lure-reward training techniques? In this workshop presented by Julie Flanery, CPDT-KA, you will expand your clicker skills and train advanced behaviors using shaping and targeting. Increasing the use of these skills improves your dog’s speed in learning and understanding criteria for new behaviors.

  • Shape, Target or Lure?
  • Considerations in Capturing
  • Breaking Down Complex Behaviors
  • Creating a Flexible Training Plan
  • When and How to Raise Criteria
  • Adding Cues to Shaped Behaviors
  • Trouble-Shooting Sessions
