This week we talked about shaping and why it’s a tool you definitely need in your training toolbox.  Not only is shaping a great way to teach your dog anything he is physically and mentally capable of doing, it also teaches him skills like:

  • Problem solving
  • Grit
  • Flexibility
  • Optimism
  • Confidence
  • Tolerance to frustration
  • And so much more

Watch this weeks video to learn more and to see a shaping demo:
