Amelia training continues

We did a couple of things tonight. First, I worked a shaping exercise, teaching her to go out and around a vase (this is going to be part of a freestyle routine). Click/treat for each behavior. I put the bowl of treats on a box, within her reach, but only one “leave it” and she was ready to work instead of helping herself. We got some good distance and started adding the cue.

Then I did some multi-exercises for multi-payouts. I did four to six behaviors, then Yay Amelia and run to the treat bowl for several treats, doled out very ceremoniously. We did both rally and freestyle sets. She was very bright and sparkly, very happy to keep going for the payoff she knew was coming. I don’t think adding duration is going to be very hard, she’s liking this game.
