Workshop Going the Right Way

courtneyToday’s Directionals Workshop was fantastic.

We started off applying our clicker skills from last week’s lesson. This week, we focused on how to shape a behavior to go in the desired direction. Each of us had something different that we needed out of the lesson and Courtney gave us all lots of individual attention to help set us up for success.

It’s always so exciting to put new tools in my training toolbox.

Everyone did an excellent job of working hard to apply their clicker training skills to the direction they wanted to go.

We ended the workshop with each of us working on specific skills: Emma and I worked on our backside command, Dominique worked on weave pole entry’s, Lance/Magic and Melody/Ghillie also worked on their backside commands. It was really nice to see how some small improvement in our training method could make such a huge difference in everyone’s desired goal.

Check out some photos below. Looking forward to next week’s Speed and Motivation.

  1. Very informative! Looking forward to next week. Last night Magic and I worked on proofing the lala jump and it improved. It is so good to know where training weaknesses are and how to approach fixing them. I also pulled out some old toys that we have not used in a while because I thought Magic was over them. Wrong. He loved the variety. Thanks Courtney and Stephanie for this great workshop.

    • That’s good news Lance! You guys are an amazing team. Emma and I are looking forward to next week too. We learned a lot and can’t wait to see some improvement through the process. See you Sunday!

  2. Incredible photos!
    I learned things I did not know, I did not know!
    Another beautiful dog day with fun people and great how to tips from Courtney.
    What’s really nice about Courtney’s teaching style is she encourages the handler along with the dog!
    But hey, I’d show up just for the Franie stories.
