Freeshaping Sample Session

This session is too long. Five minutes is the maximum time we should be working.

Who’s Doing What?

Harpyr, the white dog, is a freeshaping master. Notice how quickly he picks up on the Stretch behavior.

Prima, the Red Dog is working on Standing on her hind legs.

Soupy, the dark Blue Merle Aussie is working backing up.

Ska and Pan take a long time to warm up. Pan is given a little direction on the target part way through the session.

Rate of Reinforcement

Notice how the session really picks up when the cookies start flying. All of the dogs (except for Ska, lol) start to work harder and more diligently when the rate of reinforcement increases.
