We love targeting! Using a target is a great way to teach behaviors to your dog—touching, going to or interacting with the “target”. A target can be virtually anything—an object, a location such as your dog’s bed (“settle”), a body part like hand targeting, and more. Many of our future “trick” ideas and behavior suggestions will use a target.
Today’s ALL DOGS ALCHEMY Idea du Jour came from Sandy, our Class Coordinator who is working from home. Sandy trained Fletch to touch a target with his paw. Her video is such fun!
For easy instructions to teach target behaviors to your dog, visit our website. It’s fun training, and can be used for loads of useful behaviors!
Share your videos of your dog targeting. And let us know if there’s something you’d like to do with your dog that we can help with.
