Took this video today of Frag doing perchwork, and I wanted some critique to see if I'm on the right track or messing anything up. It's taken this long to get him half-way used to the idea and offering it, before he would CONSTANTLY fall off the perch. Had to move from books up to coke cases as you can see.
What I guess I may be a little confused at is how EXACTLY this helps with finding heel? Am I supposed to be commanding this with a verbal, or is it something he should pick up and realize to do (maneuver his butt) when we're in a heel?
As you can see, still fading the lure. Today was the first day I actually got him to maneuver around me and find heel with the lure, so I started fading right away and there are no treats in my hand for any of this, just an empty hand.
SO, am I doing this right?
eta- please ignore the barking doofus at the end and the clumsy German Shepherd whom cannot keep his feet on a box to save his life. Oh, and I'm sorry my butt's right there in everyone's face- didn't mean for that to happen!
