I'm going back and watching the whole shaping of the hold sequence. The first session is hilarious, she's like a little shark. So freaking fast!

I want a Finkie now

The progress of Backups weaves, admittedly not my best training session at 6am:


We started using a MM lately with his miraculous new food drive. It's working nicely. For him our issue was turning on 4 as you see towards the beginning but we're working through it, I'm finding it's only if I'm on that side but seeing him process is pretty reassuring. Also I want two MMs so we can go both directions and not need him to turn back to retrieve his reward, any donators in the crowd?

Video 2, working on not shooting off, coming in, turning, blah blah blah, again, I was tired and he was himself... Don't you want a Lemur too?

Love the shaped retreive

Backup's weaves are looking good - cute skirt!

Limit's session last night. He's a fine balance between sticking to the "rules" of what I want him to learn and losing him to his temper. So, I reward in places that are even remotely what I'm looking for even though he's bright enough to "get" what I really want. His temper, well you'll see. He gets pissed towardst he end and yells at his box LOL

Hahahaha I'm glad you guys like Kimma! Most people do until they spend a decent amount of time with her. Then she barks at them and they want to get away quickly

Backup is getting those weaves!!!!! He's looking nice! I would gladly take a Lemur

OMG Limit is too cute. Seriously.

Here's a quick picture from during our walk:


Handstand on a tree!!!!! She's weird. I don't ask questions anymore.

Maybe I missed it - why do you have the MM placed at the start of the weaves? You can see that his drive to get through the poles is much nicer when it's placed in front of him. Are you working on proofing them? If so, it's a bit early for that.

Purely because I started in that direction and we were weaving back and forth. Also his big problem is turning with impatience and for him lacking drive is never an issue, I needed him to know his job was all the way through before the reward. Not conventional, I know, and normally I wouldn't consider it but it seemed to be helping him understand his job and turning early gets him nothing. Today's session didn't see any turning at all until he'd completed 6.

I've been wrong with him before but hopefully it stays this way.

I have been having so much fun with my two just working on a couple of random things One of the BEST things I have been working on is from a kikopup video... How to clicker train more than one dog, teaching patience. Having the one dog settle while working with the other. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfRrB...feature=relmfu
I jumped on this! Because Maddie has always really struggled with this, and I have to pretty much crate her every single time I work with Bailey (or any other dog). The first session was hard, but the very next day it was like something clicked and they both got it no problem. WOW is training so much easier now!!!!

I am still working on Bailey jumping up, or into my arms. She'll do it consistantly now everytime I am sitting in a chair or on a couch, but anything higher like a bar stool she hesitates, she'll put her paws up, but she won't even try to jump. So I keep working in it!

I'm also teaching her roll over, since its one that everyone loves to have me show them how Maddie does it, and I keep getting asked if Bailey can do it yet She can be very "ehh personal space" or even hand shy, but much to my surprise she is really catching on to this quick

My confession.... I've been watching a TON of kikopup videos lol and I'd love to teach any of these "Double Dog tricks" to my two!

Quick random question.... if Bailey is not in a "settle" command like for training... she comes every single time I call Maddie. (For example when I call Maddie to me to give her her medicine, or when I call her over to groom) Is there a way I could teach Bailey not to come to Maddie's name? I never reward her for it, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for some games to play to get her used to hearing it and not bombarding me?

I've been struggling with Classic lately hence the lack of training videos for him. Most of it is my impatience after getting spoiled working with the Z Girls but part of it is his intolerance to be wrong. I have done a lot of tweaking of our training sessions including how quickly I increase criteria, how long training sessions are and what I use for rewards. I think I may have finally found a good working groove for us that allows for shaping to take place without him quitting or fly-biting on me. We've been doing dinner time training sessions for the last week or so and I really, really excited about his results.

The first thing we've been working on is retraining his heel position because I wasn't completely happy with our last attempt. My criteria is that his shoulder is touching my leg and I realize this creates an exaggeration of his placement including his rear curling behind me, but I would rather have an exaggeration at this point in his training than a sloppiness. The criteria of a shoulder touch is necessary for him because it gives him something else to focus on other than his paw on the target. We have been struggling to remove the target for a long time, started with an over turned bowl then went to a disc and then a piece of paper. Right now we are on a tiny scrap piece of paper and are able to move away from it here and there. He can maintain the my criteria as long as we go back to the target every now and then but can't maintain it for too long away from it. This is a huge improvement from the first couple of sessions where he would go straight to fly-biting if we moved away from the target.

Anyways, here's the latest video!

Aaaand some puppy heeling. She's a little forward in this video, I blame that on the raw meat reward, LOL. Either way, I'm happy with her progress and we are going to start adding more linear heeling in there soon.
