I'm excited to announce I've been invited to give a seminar for Your Dog's Friend in Potomac this Saturday entitled What Dog Trainers Know – That You Don't! I'll be talking about shaping, luring, targeting and capturing from 3:00p – 5:00p.
The talk is free, but you must register. Dogs aren't allowed – it's a people-only talk, so your four-legged friends can stay at home.
Shaping, luring, targeting and capturing are all techniques that trainers use to teach dogs (and anything else) many different behaviors.You'll learn what each of these are, how to use them, the pros and cons of each technique, how to use the techniques to solve problems, teach your dog manners, and do tricks.
Come on out and join us – it'll be fun and informative! And you can meet Lily, my little black Labrador (she's great at shaping, luring, capturing, and targeting – and loves to work, so she's the demo dog for the event.)
