Since beginning this blog only a short time ago, a small space of my brain has been watching and storing bits of information in regards to my animal's behaviors. I've been picking up little things that I can start working on. So here is one thing for each animal that will begin today.
Sylvester ~ Introduction to a target clicker stick
Maggie ~ A basic sit.
Kirby ~ Kirby actually has a lot of basic obedience on him already. He would probably excel in it if I gave him the time. But I have no patience for 'that' kind of obedience, so I'd rather put those talents into trick training. Who knows, maybe I can teach him to fetch me a beer! Today we will begin shaping with an empty plastic bottle.
Jake ~ Jake has a lot of basic obedience on him too. But his is very rushed. In fact, if there is even a hint that I might give him a crumb of whatever I hold in my hand, he will launch through his entire hat of tricks. So we will begin slowing this stuff down.
Frankie ~ Standing on her hind legs.
If you're lucky, I will manage to get some of this on video. Either the beginning examples of what I'd like to change, or the change itself.
