Preparing for Tricks Workshop

On Sunday we'll be having a Tricks workshop again. Last fall our workshop was divided into about 5 sections: Targeting/Nose Tricks, Foot Tricks, Moving Tricks, Props, Cues. We did a bit of training in every category, teams got to select the behavior to work on. With Foot Tricks, we had one team working on teaching crossed paws, another working on shake, and several to stand on a target.

I'm currently debating on whether or not to add in video clips and still photos to show how final behaviors can look and what specific "click points" to be looking for. I don't want to mess with technology, but on the other hand it could be very helpful.

We will keep the same format for the most part, I'll probably be adding in two sections for everyone. Reading cue cards and super simple discrimination!
