Toko and Blue wanted to join their brothers and sister in April Puppy Class and named me as their assistant and treat dispenser. So here are our very first tries at pre-homework and Lesson 1. I LOVE how much they offer, their unlimited focus and joy to work. No doubts we'll soon have more to show 🙂
You're welcome to still join us in Puppy Class as well, we just started today!
I'm really happy with their food (and toy) motivation - they will often just leave kibble in the bowl if I give them kibble (they will never leave raw though - they would kill for meat! 🙂 ) - but then show them the hand with that same kibble they just walked from and they will get CRAZY. My other puppies were not like that at all, we needed to build food motivation slowly. And these puppies just had it in the moment I offered them kibble from hand rather as a bowl! I guess they're saying they want to work?!? 🙂 They're really funny, any time they see me, Blue starts backing up and Toko starts to paw touch Blue... - too cute!!! And they would just work for ever, no problems with distractions at all!
