A very detailed step-by-step DVD from Michele Pouliot's Trick Training Tutorial Series. This is a fun tutorial for clicker training the "Paw Stand" behavior, where dogs place their hind feet up against a prop or human while their front feet remain on the floor. This athletic and creative trick behavior can help develop hind foot awareness and improve balance. Excellent mental and physical stimulation for the clicker trained dog.
Michele uses the training of the "Paw Stand" as a means of demonstrating effective clicker training techniques, including the application of strategic reward delivery for fast learning. Dogs will have fun learning the trick and handlers will enjoy the training process. Michele's ability to offer valuable insights and nuances to training method is substantial, even for advanced trainers."The first time I saw Listo's paw stand in one of Michele's routines, I knew it was one that I wanted to train Ben to do! I was so lucky to have the chance to work with Michele in person! She helped me with each step, giving me confidence in knowing how to proceed in practice. With her guidance, we progressed quickly and it continues to be one of our favorite tricks!"
