Okay so since I've had Summer I've been trying to teach her 'high five'. I have taught it to every dog I've ever had in just a sitting or two. But well, Summer never even thought to use her paws so it's been challenging. So I've been using a marker on the ground and then trying to move it up. For the longest time it didn't work. But a few days ago she did something unexpected- she pawed at it!
So now I have it marked where she will paw any object I'm holding but I can't seem to transfer it to my hand. How would you go about phasing out the target?
It seems so silly since I've taught her a lot of more complicated commands than this but for some reason using her front paws is a little hard for her to get.
