Free Shaping: Hone your skills as a trainer, while having fun with your dog!

Course Information:

Free shaping is a crucial skill for positive reinforcement trainers to understand. In the old days, if a dog didn’t perform the behavior, we manipulated him into position; then came luring, which is kinder, but can leave you looking foolish in front of your clients if the behavior doesn’t happen; today the cutting edge skill is free shaping. Free shaping gives you the ability to train any behavior the animal is capable of without physical manipulation. For those wanting to test for the CPDT-KSA designation, the ability to free shape is a requirement. It’s almost certain you won’t pass the skills exam without the ability to free shape. This course will teach you the principles of shaping.
