Great Uses for the Hand Target

We have shared several videos on target training, but this video does an great job of teaching the hand touch.

They take you through the steps and also show you some practical uses for the hand touch while teaching their dog.

We would like to remind you that as with any cue, this command needs lots of practice and proofing.

The more solid your dog is with understanding the hand target, the easier it will be to transfer it to other behaviors.

Be sure to start proofing “greeting strangers” with not so strange people as well as on and off objects that are familiar before trying it at the vet’s office.

If you got some great ideas on using the hand target be sure to SHARE this video with all your dog loving friends.
