Hand targeting is an excellent tool for teaching a reliable recall, and it is a way to maneuver your dog without pushing, pulling, or coaxing. You can use the hand target to teach your dog to get into the car or off of the sofa, or even more complicated behaviors such as onto a grooming table or scale or over jumps. In this video, KPA CTP Sarah Walsh demonstrates how to teach your dog this important, versatile behavior!
