Atty and Pickles!, Session #88B, 6-24-13

This is the second part of today’s session, practicing backing out on cue.

Once I got him staying nicely on the trailer (See Session #88A), it seems he got a little stuck! That’s okay. I’d rather have that than having him rush off the trailer with no warning!

So here we practice backing out on cue. When he finally did, he got a Stud Muffin, both times. 🙂

When he didn’t respond to the cue and I went to the front, he got a chin scratch only – no treat. Then if he offered to target his boat bumper, I did click and treat that.

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".
