Atticus Offering Backing onto a Pedestal, 1-29-13

This is the last few minutes of a 15+ minute session where we practiced backing onto a pedestal with all four feet, both uphill and downhill. Uphill is backing toward the trailer and downhill is backing away from the trailer. And, while I am using food treats, I’m also using loading onto the trailer as a reward for doing the harder behavior of backing onto a pedestal. Stay until the end to see what he offers me! 🙂

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".
