The joys of shaping - learning to not give up.
The joys of shaping. Having a dog that is willing to try different things - and retry something she knew worked one time before. Look at all the offered behaviors!

Object: There was a ball in the bowl I wanted her to pick up. At the time of this clip, she had been sticking her nose in the bowl and pushing the ball around. I decided to wait for an open mouth to click this time, but she got confused.

What I love most is how she was willing to back up to the bowl after coming all the way forward to me. That is a completely new concept for her, and she rocked it. So she got an easy click.

Time: 25 seconds
