Sloppy The Pig
Sloppy The Pig is the guest star of our March Puppy Class. He is just so cute that I just needed to post his videos. Thanks John! In this first video, you can see how important it is to keep reinforcement rate high, especially when the dog (or a pig!) doesn't know the system just yet. His focus improved magically when the criteria got easier to understand for a puppy pig:

Slower is always faster! - The more you want, the more likely you lose the dog - and happier you are with little things, faster you will get to big things!
And here is Sloppy 2 weeks later:

That’s awesome! I’ve heard pigs are smart and this proves it or maybe it just proves how well clicker training works. Lol, probably both! Now I want to see pig agility. 😀
HOW wonderfully refreshing and inspirational! Thank you for sharing! Can’t wait for the sequel!
Do I dare to say that Sloppy might be cuter than a puppy? 🙂
I think he is! So tiny and his pork feet moving so quick. 🙂
He is just too cute! What a great video!
Cute -- and fast !!! Love it 😀
This is GREAT!!! When is the Race???
Truly inspirational. I thought training a terrier was a challenge. The video clips show with patience, positive attitude, and timely tasty rewards, training/learning is FUN and rewarding for handler and partner.
That pig is cookoo for a clicker! Great name and way to go John!
