Today’s training in two sessions. I’m adding movement to his 2o2o. First time doing this, so it’s a lot of 1 step forward, 2 steps back. I used a smaller target for his perch work, and he could do it. And he’s getting better at “slam” – both feet up and pushing. Think of the preparation for the teeter!
I introduced him to the cone tonight – I use it to teach “out” and “wrap”. I’m working “hike” with smaller targets. I need to be sure to balance smaller targets with larger ones for more duration. Again, this 2 steps forward, 1 step back to maintain it. I shaped him to get on a stool (circus dog!), and went back to 4-in-a-box with the goal to get smaller this week.
