Teaching Your Dog to Hand Target or 'Touch'
Targeting is a great skill to teach your dog, especially for agility. Some obstacles require that the dog touches a contact zone with their paw and you want your dog to be able to follow your hand instructions.
Begin by teaching your dog to target with his nose.
Teaching Your Dog to Target with Paws
Once your dog has completely mastered the 'Touch' command you can move on to targeting with Paws.
