Shame! (cover eyes)
Take a bow
Work on retrieving
I'm sad to say I did not learn "take a bow" yet. Luring (the method Mom was trying) did not work for this trick; I was way to focused on the food to realize that bowing = treat. Mom's still going to teach me this trick, but we'll be using capturing which is the slowest method.
I did learn my other two goals, though! Check it out:
If you're curious about my training methods or have questions such as what treats does Mom use, feel free to check out my training page titled Training the "Untrainable": Our Life of Positive Reinforcement. If you have questions not addressed on the training page, feel free to ask below!
My April goals list:
Turn (spin clockwise, I already know counterclockwise)
Jump though Mom's legs
Work on bowing
Since it's already the second week of April, Mom and I started working on the above. Here's my very first training session learning "jump through":
Mom's also using luring for teaching "turn". I know it doesn't look like it, but we primarily use free shaping!
Someone asked the other day about how many collars/harnesses/leashes I have, so I figured I'd show y'all my extensive wardrobe! This does not include clothes, by the way.
|This is just some of my stash on the rack Mom and Sugar made.|
I have a lot, so be warned! The total is:
10 collars: 3 leather, 2 cotton, 5 nylon
9 leashes: 1 leather, 1 cotton, 1 rope, 3 nylon, 1 Flexi, 1 hotdog, 1 25ft training line
3 harnesses: 1 Puppia, 1 dress, 1 BrilliantK9
I also have another rope leash and another harness on the way to review, BOL! DM: It may seem like I have a slight problem, but I've only bought the following: 2 collars, 1 harness, 3 leashes. Everything else is from doing reviews.
Here's some (not everything's shown) pictures of my stash. Enjoy!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
P.S: I'm 2 and a half today!
