This is a course for you, if you want to work with your dog on getting a large behaviors repertoire, and rely on as little helping tools as possible.
In this course we will work with breaking down all the things you would like your learner to able to do, into single behaviors. We focus on developing multiple of the skills you and your learner need, to teach them exactly what you dream off. We do this by shaping and capturing behaviors, and we work with them off cue, to make sure we get the exact behavior.
The focus of this course is to get the learner started on offering behaviors. We will try to build a big repetoire of behaviors, so that our learners get creative and become an very active part of our training. If you want to start all the behaviors this course covers, there is going to be quite a lot of work – so be prepared for that.
The behaviors we will cover in this course are:
Under each behavior box, there are several behaviors. We will go through a few of them, and you are always free to chose which behaviors you would like to focus on. We will also discuss the topics of:
This course focus will be working without treats in hand and helping as little as possible, without leaving your animal frustrated.
We give the learner the highest rage of choice we can, and teach the learner to actively take part in the training. This will be part 1, where you get introduced to all of the behaviors, and then select 1 to work with from every box.
In vol. 2, we will work more on fluency and adding variations to the behaviors. This course is suitable for you if you would like your dog to offer you more behaviors and like to shape them in the direction you want. If you already have all the above behaviors off cue, part 2 would be a suitable option for you.
