Oreo & I have been diligently working on our 7 steps to a perfect heel.
We are at step 3 now. We are practicing getting Oreo into position on various objects and adding verbal cues. I felt as though we were almost ready to move on, until I watched this footage.
I was clicking for when Oreo touched my leg, but it seems as though his back end is still not where I want it. I don't want to rush to move on before I'm sure he completely understands where I want him.
I plan on doing a couple more sessions like this, and trying to click for a better position.
I think Oreo really is getting the hang of it. He is going the "hard" direction more often than the easy way now. He learned he was getting bigger rewards that direction.
I was hoping to be further along before our rally class on Saturday, but I think everything we've done so far will still help us in class.
