Shaping Clean Up

Wouldn't it be nice if your dog would clean up after themselves after they've played with all of their toys? With this 4-week course, you can train your dog to do just that.

Course Details

Let's face it, our dogs these days have LOTS of toys to try keep them occupied. But that means there are oftentimes toys strewn all around your house. If only your dog would help you tidy up! With this course, they will!

Over 4-weeks, your dog will learn how to retrieve, hold and deliver toys into a basket or similar item, thus preventing the need for you to clean the house every 10 minutes.

We will accomplish this by using a combination of shaping, proper reward placement and making the entire experience a fun and engaging game. Soon you will be able to show off just how helpfu your dog is to your family and friends.
