so how exactly do you get a dog to put a hotdog in their mouth and not eat it? Mine always got them as treats... I'm sure if i ever tried it would be gone in .02589355 seconds.

that's kinda cute! I think he should get extra points... that's like bringing 2 hotdogs! lol.

you don't have to use a clicker (I find it easier)

I started today. Kaiden did retrieve the hot dog. We practiced holding it first...then went to retrieving. He was so into it that he was VERY grabby about the treats when I was rewarding him. Of course I was using hot dog pieces for rewards.

I'll try it. When is the hot dog contest over? I wonder what dog I should train.. Georgia or Oliver would probably be the easiest... maybe Elly. No way in hell would Molly or Bales ever do it.

If I tried this with Reggin, he'd probably get sick and throw up from eating too many hotdogs, before the training session was even over.

Congrats Dan and Gunner The contest is still open until August 10th so plenty of time for everyone to still try. Duke and I havent had a chance to practice yet, we've got half an hour free later on that I'm gonna break out the camera and try and get a few short sessions in. I'll post updates, very nervous to see what he will initially do. I think I am going to try and approach it the same way a few people mention, first hone his formal retrieve skills and then try scenting his retireve item with the hot dog and then finally switch the ball or dumbbell with the hot dog.


So to recap 9 more days until the contest closes.

Okay so just to remind everyone this contest officially closes midnight tonight ( regardless of where you are) so just post it before the 11th and it's fair game. Once all of the videos are in I will post the entries in the Fire Hydrant area like we did with the close the door group so that voting can begin.

I unfortunantly did not get much of a chance to work on this one as Duke and I have been preparing 6 other shaping and captured behaviours before our first inclass workshop at the Karen Pryor Academy and I just couldnt find time to squeeze in one more.

Also suggestions for the third trick is now open, I was wondering what you guys though about having a puppy trick and advanced trick going on at the same time so that all skill levels could participate?

Kayla

I completely forgot about this! Am I still allowed to post my video, or is it too late now?
