Awesome tool. would love to know more about different ways to work with a clicker. Thanks and Thanks for creating this group
Zoe Bug (my pup) has been doing great with hind end awareness, I can now do a very simple backwards weave through my legs. We still need to work on making it a chain, but so very proud of how great she's done. I also started teaching her to move her hind end while standing on a flower pot, LOL, yes stupid tricks.
The donkeys are doing fantastic, it's so cool to see how different they are in the way they learn.
Right now we are working on the 'why would you leave me' game, it's a little hard to explain, hopefully I'll have a video up on youtube.
As for Zoe Bug, I'm really wanting to teach her treibbal, I saw a great video online of how to teach it & I think it'd be a fun game for her.
Currently I'm teaching Bug (my dog) hind end awareness using Kikopup's online video. She's had her fourth session and I'm getting almost 180 degrees on each side. Really concentrating on working both sides & keeping sessions short. I'm also taking her on morning jogs with me, so I can get some cardino & it's a great opportunity to work on her loose leash skills. I'm still circling alot when she starts pulling, but I'm sure she'll get the idea soon enough. I have to jog slow since she's very easily excitable, but we will work on speed after she understands the concept, plus it's ok that we're going slow, I'm not the best runner yet LOL
The donkeys are learning the 'go forward' cue from Alexandra Kurland's duct tape horse. Rocky my gelding is still at one step,c/t, while Daisy my jennet is offering up to 5 or 6 steps at a time before c/t. also keeping myself on a 5 clicks per side with the donkeys. I find super short sessions are easier for them, anything longer & they get bored & I confuse them by switching behaviors I'm asking. So I'm sticking to one behavior and short sessions.
