To my utter shame, February this year for me is going to be “oops I missed Train Your Dog month“.
Vulpe and me have been so busy working day in, day out on her usual reactivity issues that it’s been a long time indeed since we’ve done any fun training. While dealing with her fear/aggression/reactivity issues progresses tremendously slowly (if at all) I’ve decided to try and get back to a bit of fun brain exercise at home.
Vulpe’s always been a pretty quick learner – give her a click and a wee treat and she’ll do more or less anything. So my goal for February is to try and teach her THREE new tricks.
I’m hoping the focus and reminder of what clicker training is all about will help with her training on walks. Only today her doggy walker reminded me that she’s made more or less zero progress in the past 3 months or so. Oh dear!
Hopefully I’ll have some new tricks to report at the end of the month, anyway. Now I just need to decide which to choose…..
