Teaching A Dog to Target

Tanner stars in a video showing how to lure your dog to target. Targeting is having your dog touch an object or your hand on command. Targeting can be used later to have your canine touch a specific spot while you shape a new behavior. Tanner already knows what the command "touch" means. A hand held out with the command "touch", he walks over and puts his nose to my hand. This article does a good job of further explaining what target is and how it can be used.
