Okay, this week was much easier for us than last week. The video below is our second training session. The trick needs fine tuning, but he is starting to really get it.
For week 3 we are going to work on “hold”. The goal is for Dan to take and hold an object (a variety of objects will be used) until released. I am hoping to work up to 30 seconds of duration on this one. He can sort of do this trick, but we have never formally worked on it and he only holds the object for a few seconds.
Also, I think I need to change my posting schedule. It has been difficult to post on Sunday nights, so the final trick and the new goal will be posted on Mondays instead from now on. An update and shaping plan will be posted on Thursdays.
Don’t forget to post a photo of your dog doing one of the tricks from 52 Weeks to be entered in the October raffle!
