We’re now spending more time with the left front and I’ve been experimenting with ways to isolate what I want while keeping the “ghost” behaviors to a minimum and not trigger pawing.
I tried staying with just one foot and only doing three reps at a time. I’ve tried walking her away from the wash rack as a break. I’ve tried switching sides after each three-rep session. I finally went back to a form of feeding her forward after clicking her for stepping backward. This seems to work the best. I think we’re finally on the right track. Here’s a short clip of how we’ve been practicing.
