Default Rear end awareness is FUN

A few evenings a week, Patton and I work on rear-end awareness for his dinner - usually about 15 minutes.

Here's a 10min clip of his progression as of a few days ago @ 17 weeks!



He's getting a lot more coordinated even though he kind of looks like a kangaroo. I just love watching puppies spin around bowls. XD

Towards the end of each session I start challenging him a little more with no food lure in the hand any longer and he's picking it up quick.

Of course we have to play at the end... lots of engagement keeps it fun!

Thank you!

Zoe, I love clicker training, but sometimes it is hard to coordinate everything. I use "marker" training with a verbal "YES!" very frequently when I can't coordinate a clicker in my hand - might be easier for you!
