Atty Trailer Practice, 4-17-13

This is the first four minutes of our practice today. The whole session lasted 30 minutes and he got on the trailer a total of six times.

This clip shows my closing and latching the trailer door and his waiting (almost) for the cue to back off.

In all of the mini-sessions today, I practiced his waiting for the backing cue. Sometimes he did wait and sometimes he didn’t. Once he even ignored the back cue three times so I gave up asking him to back.

On the fifth load, he didn’t stay on long and got off to eat grass. I think he may have been done for the day. I let he graze for a bit, then I asked him to get back on and he did and played the game for another 7 minutes!

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".
