I know it has been awhile since I last posted but now that I have earned my Champion Trick Dog Title and all the pressure is off it is time to get my blog back on track... In my last post I wrote about the scent portion of the Champion Trick Dog application, I listed other scent games you could play with your humans and even left some instructions for your humans on how to play the scent game. I sure hope some of you got to have fun and play at least one of the scent games. If you missed that blog it can be found in the archives on my website.
Even though I earned my final trick dog title, Mom and I are still working on new tricks as well as our performance routine. I never know what Mom has planned next or what she is going to bring home.
Here is the training plan:
1. I jump in the box
2. I lay down
3. I pull a rope attached to the lid and shut myself in the box.
4. I push the lid open on command.
Mom is hoping I got this down pat by Halloween in fact the command to open the the lid is "trick or treat" BOL!
If you want to teach this to your dog please do so using positive reinforcement... in other words use yummy treats and lot of praise and remember it is really dark in the box.
I hope you enjoyed todays blog and I hope you come back for more... you can always subscribe to my blog and it will be delivered to your inbox.
Remember to always make time for and have fun with your dog!
