Shaping Project

I had previously practiced a little bit of free shaping with Andreu, but when he was younger we had little success.  He would easily get distracted and move on to something else.  So, at 5 months we tried again, and with a bit more of an attention span now, we managed to shape him into putting 4 feet in a box lid!  The intention is to create body awareness and eventually make the box smaller.  Free shaping a behavior also develops learning skills, and helps with overall communication.
