Backing onto a Pedestal, 1-8-13

Today’s video of Atticus backing onto a pedestal (1-8-13). I’ve positioned the pedestal against the wall and put him parallel to the wall so that we could focus on the left hind. The wall on his left limits his choices.

However, I found that it messed me up. When I’ve focused on his left hind before, I was also on his left so that I could see his left hind. With the wall there, I wanted to be on his right. But that messed him up a little – or at least it may have confused him. So I had to adjust my position back on his left as best I could.

This clip starts about five minutes in from the beginning of our session, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t give me good tries before. 🙂


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".
