Atty Trailer Loading Skills, Session #89, 6-25-13

Today’s session lasted approximately ten minutes. The only thing changed was the location of the truck and trailer – it’s now down by the compost bin again.

Yesterday, I thought he was a star and he ran through the behavior skills fairly quickly – load, stand while I walk away, while I look in the back door of the trailer, while I close the door, rattle the butt bar, hook the butt bar, close the door, etc.

Today, he was even better and we ran through those skills even faster – only two reps in many cases.

This clip is of the very last bit and he responded well, although slowly at first, to the back off cue.

Tomorrow we may move the trailer!

If you have questions or comments, please post them. 🙂

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".
