Foot Targeting

This class is all about foot targeting. There will be discussion threads to ask questions and post video for review. Everyone is a participant. Each class is broken into sections with one or more lessons within each section. You can post ONE short 1-2 min video per section for instructional review. Each section will post to the site every 7 days.

This course starts immediately after you enroll and is open for video submission, questions, review and comments for 1 yr. This class is always open so some students will be ahead of you and some will be behind you.

Do you have a dog that dives on props as you put them on the floor or a dog that is overly focused on your hands. A lot of my clients think this is endearing as their dog is so excited to get on equipment and super food motivated but in reality it shows a lack of solid communication between handler and dog. This takes precious time away from what ever task you are training. Putting each target behavior on cue will make your training sessions more efficient and will "give more specific information to your dog" to create a better line of communication.

Why take this class:

🌀 Targeting improves communication between dog and handler

🌀 Targeting is a useful way to teach behaviors and tricks

🌀 Targeting is useful to obtain specific position for fitness exercises

🌀 Understand when to Click and how to generalize a cue

🌀 Improve your shaping skills

Curriculum:

Disclaimer: The information in this class may over lap or appear in other classes due to the foundation needed for many behaviors, tricks and fitness exercises.
