I really like how she leads me by a good 20 feet or more to get to the training area near the trailer. That’s how reinforcing it is for her now. This is our goal. Make the area around the trailer fun and somewhere she wants to be.
In the two videos to follow, notice that she’s more willing to get onto the trailer when I am also on the trailer and luring her forward. As we progress, I will “shape” myself out of the the stimulus picture. For now, though, I am the reason she gets on the trailer and I help her back up slowly in order to back off carefully.
The second video is from a second session. This session came after working with feet and doing some walking together.
