tricky t-day ~ mickey button

I've been working mostly on foundation activties with Chewy this week.  However, I was able to teach him to hit the mickey button.

It's kind of hard to hear the "oh, boy", but you'll get the idea.  Hoping this fun trick will lead to all sorts of targeting behaviors.

He definitely has a brain! Once he got what you wanted, he was all about touching that button!

I didn't even know a Mickey button existed! lol I thought I was doing good to own an Easy button. Chewy is so smart! I see the beginnings of big things for that little cutie!
