Goy älskar verkligen att träna tricks! Han har blivit riktigt duktig på shaping, förstår fort och gör stora framsteg varje dag. För varje ny övning går det fortare och fortare att lära sig. Jag själv börjar bli duktig också. Att träna shaping är svårt! Man vill så gärna hjälpa genom att visa, men det är ett stort NO, NO! :)
Tänkte att ni ska få se förra veckans video. Först mitt inlägg med video, och sedan Silvias kommentar.
1. Pivoting – He now does really nice pivoting to the right. We have generalized it (different objects, different environment) I haven’t cued it yet (having problem to chose a cue). Next step is to start with the left pivoting. I will try doing with help from a wall.
2. Sit up – Here I have had some problems to control the target, his paws, kibbles and clicker :) Today he offered sit up without target and I didn’t have a clicker near. And he sat really nice! Do I need to click? Or is it ok just to treat him with kibbles from the right angel to keep adding duration?
3. Back up – I think this is his favorite right now, offering back upall the time. But I want more distance and intensity. Maybe start doing it with me standing and outdoors? Last night I started to add the cue for it.
4. 2on2off – I have had a hard time to find a proper object :) I will build a good one next weekend. But I think we are getting there. I just want to add duration more and also a duration when I toss the treat until the release word.
Now we will start with lesson #3!
Great pivoting!!! Looks like the other direction won’t be too hard either as he is offering some of it already! For duration, clicker is not very important no, so once they understand to put the feet up, you can as well just feed them in a desired position. Make sure his weight is as much to the back as possible so that he can balance more&more on his own. Backing up looks great, time to name it yes! Very cool 2ono2ff too, showing really great understanding and independence already! You can add distractions to the stay. -- All ready for the next lesson!
