Today, Atty and I did some more practice standing on the trailer while I walked away. I’ve done this in the past, way in the past, but it seems to need to be worked on some more as it has broken down lately. I did much of my practice with him with the side door open and having him stick his head/nose/face out to see me which I clicked and treated. Then we started working with the side door closed. Then when we went back to having the side door open, he started backing out when I walked back. So now I’ve changed his job to targeting even if I walk to the back. I would also like to get a little duration, but it’s not paramount.
I’ve also asked him to back out on cue, but also to wait for the cue to back.
Here’s today’s video:
