Default He did it!!!

PAYTON JUMPED INTO THE LAKE!!

We went out last weekend and tried to get him off the baby dock (it's maybe a foot to the water, and only about a foot of water) and he wasn't really game. I lowered him in so he would see it wasn't deep but he still wasn't game. He DID want to go play in the shallows, there's a place where people can slide their boats into the water and he was all about playing there, but jumping into the lake... nope.

So I tried again today since it's supposed to rain and storm all weekend. The first time he actually FELL in. OMFG hahaha. But the second time he actually edged up to it then hopped/slid in. At first I thought it was an accident because he looked shocked when he was standing there... but then he came around the dock and up onto the shore and looked at me, and I was going NUTS and gave him a whole handful of cookies... and he ran back to the edge, looked thoughtful for a second, then hopped in. Again I shoved a handful of cookies in his face, while he was in the water this time - the time before he looked so shocked he didn't want them - and he came running back up on the shore again, ran to the edge of the dock, looked at me like "Do you see this??" and JUMPED IN.
And he did it again, and again, and again. And every time he came back to the shore like =D =D DID YOU SEE WHAT I JUST DID MOM

I only let him jump in about six times, he kept wanting to jump in but I knew rain was on it's way and I didn't want to over do it the very first time. So I toweled him off and we came back home (and just beat the rain.)

I can't stop smiling. I was so proud and excited I almost cried.

HE JUMPED IN THE LAKE AHHHH

Good job, Payton, and Beanie!

I will say, does he have toy drive? Since you said you are rewarding with treats. They need quite a toy drive to actually make then get that distance/form/speed.

Yep, we used food today because I was using my clicker to shape him to hop off the dock.

Gotcha! I have a feeling I might be doing this as well soon with a certain someone that is refusing to go off the dock. O.o
