Ok all you perch trainers- how do I get my puppy Zar to stop thinking that the perch (feed tub) is a new toy?
He gets all excited when I take it out and starts biting it & pawing at it. He will fling his whole body on it if I keep luring him forward with the food. I've been able to reward a foot on it once in awhile, but he thinks the perch is WAY too much fun!
He is 11 weeks old, by the way. He does well with food luring when it comes to heeling, sit & down, so he does have some powers of concentration!
