Going back to work as been an adjustment. I'm Tired!
Not much time to do much training, and when we do, I've been working on agility stuff. Oreo needs to burn off some energy.
I thought I'd put together a video of how I've been teaching Oreo his "out" command. He needs this in agility when a course requires us to take the back side of a jump, not the side that is head on. Tricky....
As I wrote in a previous post, I've been teaching Oreo to go "out" around various stuff. However, I can't use any objects that he can jump in or on, because that is what he will focus on doing! I send him using both arms, so he learns to go both directions. I am also trying to remember to hold my palm up, as an additional cue.
Then, I bring out the agility equipment, and try out some jumps. It seems to be working for us.
Here is our silliness:
I think we should change tricky t-day to silly s-day.
