Shaping is not a training in which your dog has to “figure out what to do”!
When your dog has to “come up with what is expected of him”, this is not shaping – that is just bad training.
Think about what you will be teaching. In any other context, random behaviors that the animal offers are usually signs of a fading process and relapse of behaviors, and that is definitely something we don’t want.
An important part of shaping is to gradually build the behavior. Shaping should be errorless! Each step should lead to the desired behavior. This requires prior setting and analysis of the necessary premises.
Does this sound scary and serious? Don’t worry! I will explain it with simple examples and everything is shown in tutorials, so you will understand it quickly!
