Shaping the Retrieve Part One (cat)

Unedited shaping footage, warts and all. Try to learn from my mistakes. *g* This is intended as an example of what shaping* can look like in practice. A more thorough retrieve tutorial with discussion of the individual training steps is being planned. *Shaping by successive approximation: Rewarding baby steps in the right direction. The animal very gradually has to do more to get the trainer to click and treat. Good timing and criteria setting is essential.
