If so, then this Shaping Workshop is for you!
This two-day workshop was created and taught by Certified Pet Dog Trainer/author Pat Miller is designed for the novice-to-experienced shaper with plenty of built-in flexibility and opportunity for you to pursue your own training goals.

Release your creativity: practice basic and free shaping exercises; learn tricks, targeting, good manners behaviors, retrieve, shave points off obedience and Rally scores. Shape your dog to take a bow; crawl; go to his place; put his toys away; bring you a tissue; say his prayers; play jump rope, climb a tree; the sky’s the limit!
