Atticus Backing onto the Trailer, 2-8-13

Backing onto the trailer, today (2-8-13): He started out backing halfway on and then got off. He made it clear that he thought he should get on forward first. “Hey, mom, you know it’s easier this way, right?” And, since we’ve done it that way before (let him get on forward first), why should I suddenly change the plan? So he got on forward first, then allowed me to shape him to load backwards. 🙂

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".
