Ahh, nothing like trying to do some clicker training outside with Sweetheart when Bavarian (who is inside the house) starts incessantly barking at Monte while they are both standing at the food bowl. Really easy to keep Sweetheart's focus let me tell you. Ugh. All in all she did pretty well for the little bit we worked with her while Bavarian the Annoying was being a fool.
The weather is going to warm up so I will be able to pitch the other dogs outside while I work with Sweetheart inside. We did the name game tonight. I would say her name and when she would look me in the eyes I would click the clicker and treat her. I need to work on my clicker trigger finger but all in all we did ok for our first go round. Les did a few rounds of the name game too. I hope Sweetheart can get the hang of this. She is so food motivated (a nice phrase for GREEDY) that I think she will do fine. I will just have to make sure I work with her each day, several times a day.
This fur baby post is short and sweet but the fur baby is awfully cute. I hope you agree.
