In this session, the presenter will go over some of the ways she sees good trainers tweak their shaping sessions using completely different strategies depending on context. She will discuss: • Why the 80% rule is problematic. • Bold shaping. • Cautious shaping – pingponging. • How the 10 Laws of Shaping evolved into the Modern Principles of Shaping. • Some common shaping mistakes – and how to address them. Shaping is the sharpest tool in the animal trainer’s box…theoretically. Practically, it can be hard to execute, and many trainers get stuck. Hopefully, this lecture will provide you with some ideas of how to get unstuck. Level of difficulty: Intermediate
