Atticus Backing onto a Pedestal, 1-4-13

This clip of Atticus working on backing onto the pedestal is uncut from the beginning. So it shows you right where we started out today. (There’s lots more afterwards that I did not include.)

Whereas yesterday’s video started after about 20-30 minutes of struggle trying to not cue him or direct him in any way.

Today I started out working with the left hind, as I’d done a few days ago. (Yesterday, I worked strictly on the right hind.) After I got what I thought were several good efforts (and successes) with the left hind, I switched to the right. I went back to the left at least once more and maybe twice, with the right hind again in between.

You’ll see that he got his first success within two minutes (!) of beginning the session. I was pretty happy! 😀


About Laurie Higgins

I play with clicker training - with my horses, dogs, and cats. I also attempt to grow vegetables with the hope of one day being able to feed my family from my garden. My daughter and I are learning ballroom dancing. Well, we were. But she left me for a paying horse job, so now my husband and I are learning ballroom dancing. I'm also now helping Peggy Hogan, of Clicker Training Horses (and The Best Whisper is a Click) to teach people how to train their own horses using "clicker training".
