Another Red Retriever update...

She's been comfortable going under things since Monday? last week I think. It didn't take long. Tonight I started waiting for her to offer ducking her head before c/t and using treat placement to get her more under the bench.

After a discussion with my talented trainer best friend, I decided to try classical conditioning as an approach to minimizing her startling rather than the operant conditioning I was using. Tonight something SUPER SCARY fell on her while she was playing ball, using CC I was able to get her to offer standing on it.

Progress, we have it!

I also discovered that she loves, loves, loves cheese. Seriously will do anything for cheese. Even go near the scary pink box that fell on her scary. Behold the power of cheese!
