Well, today Grimm and I couldn't run off lead in the woods and fields, because the forest service was working on removing some trees. So.....
We went on walks, and Grimm had to really work to stay in heel. Praise, corrections, even a rare cookie or two helped.
Then I had Grimm carry my leather glove across the long parking lot in front of the apartmenthouse-- and back, while maintaining heel position the whole way, carrying the glove calmly. TONS of soothing praise.
Then Grimm had to carry my house-keys up the steps to the landing, sit, give focus-- wait for "Out!" to give me the keys.
We did some object identification/retrieval games in the livingroom, with some lil bit of obedience woven in... plus we addad an element of focuswork too.
I had to actually WAKE GRIMM UP because I needed to go on my next walk LOL! He is sleeping again by my side as I type this.
Mental stim stuff rocks!!
PS-- His fave activity? Seems to be carrying the glove while in heel across the long parkinglot and back, and carring the keys while in heel, too. He seems to calm right down-- knows it is WORKING.
