Yep, he's not 100% sure on it. He wants to do it repeatedly... it's an opportunity to earn cookies so he keeps going back to it. So he is game to offer it, he's just not sure what to do when he's up there. I have honestly never taught a teeter before - the very first time Auggie saw a teeter, he ran straight up it, rode it down, ran off, then immediately circled around and did it again like it was the best thing ever. No training necessary except asking for a target at the end. Because Auggie is perfect. And I know the trainer I work with would recommend I lure it, but I'm not really game to lure. Payton doesn't "get" luring for one thing, because he's been shaped so much. He looks at me like "WTF are you waving the cookie around for??"
So I just did it with the clicker and let him offer whatever he wanted on it. It's not an adjustable teeter which would have been ideal... he definitely isn't 100% sure about the movement. I'm thinking of trying to make an adjustable teeter and re-clicker training on that with it down low, then raising it up?

I haven't played Bang Games with him beyond getting him to interact with stuff that makes noise - I googled quickly, is this what you recommend?

He is a hell of a tugger. I worked hard on that.
