Scenthurdle stuff.

She's got fetching and scenting just fine and jumping of course is good. It's the going away from mama to go down the lane to get the dumbbell that's the issue.

So a combination of making it fun to go away from me and making sure I'm consistent in how I send her and building more value for the dumbbell that's what we're working on.

We're still front foot targeting and OMG he's doing so well, coming from the hour long staring contests with nothing to click. We have a long way to go but, yay!, we're on a path. He's somehow convinced he needs to dig while targeting so we're cleaning that up.

Also we're retraining the come to heel with a pivot instead of his originally trained tuck behind and line up. Additionally we're proofing the position with side stepping and eventually we'll work on heeling backwards. He can reverse with me in front but he needs some confidence that it's possible next to me.

Lastly, we're trying to retrain his positions. For so long I just accepted what he gave me because he's been such a tough dog to train with but with his new found brain and clarity we're trying for a less slouchy sit and a tighter down, he has a tendency to kick one leg back froggy style which with his touch and shaping issues I just took but now we're attempting to clean it up.

High hopes for the nerd.

Here's an update on Cohen's progress with her handstand. I decided to try to encourage her to keep her head tucked between her front paws rather than out in front -- she's turned some of her handstands into tripod headstands and I ultimately want this to be a walking handstand. There's a few good repetitions at 0:30 and 1:10.

Forgive my clothing and the background noise/conversation. I'm home sick, and my husband was playing video games on the couch.

- Stop humping other dogs at the dog park
- Sit does not mean sit, wait a few seconds, jump on me and then sit again. I do not need reminding that you are seated. JUST FRIKIN WAIT
- Try to get into a down before I die of old age
- I know you like shaping, but training class is not the time to show off that you can put your back feet on the trainers toes just because she is holding a clicker
- Garbage day is not "Merlin is served his meal on the ground" day. I am so sick of fishing things out of your mouth
- For the love of all that is good
JUST
LET
ME
LURE
**** I AM PRETTY SICK OF SHAPING EVERYTHING BUT YOU MAKE LURING IMPOSSIBLE! USE YOUR BRAIN EVEN WHEN FOOD IS PRESENT!
SOME BODY AWARENESS PLEASE!
- The geese at the park do not like you.
I will leave you to be killed if they go after you. I am scared of them.

and I know the trainer has sucky treats like milkbones but stop being such a snob! Would it kill you to just take one for the team and eat one?!

Some dogs can't afford freeze dried liver and cod and hotdogs.
CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE MERLIN!

You make a great demo dog and work with people so well but kind of ruin it when they offer you a treat and you make a point of spitting it out like a brat

Try going to do some therapy work at the retirement/old age home and they won't take the treats from the really excited residents.

Poor residents got their hearts broken.
