“Target Training provides another way to help you shape behaviors, lets you build speed from the beginning, and focuses the dog on the training. Save your back, work at a distance, or get tricky parts of the dog, such as back feet, moving the way you want them to move. No matter what your training goals, targets can help you get there.
