Shadow's Clicker Training
Ok so things are starting off slowly. She was really stressed about having Mandie here and so she wasn't very co-operative. But it's been a week since Mandie found her forever home and things are progressing slowly. I have three clickers (yah I'm obsessed) and I have to remember to use the orange one cause Biscuit associates the other two with her and has even stopped eating her dinner to perform tricks for me (little darling!). I was originally going to use brocolli for her but she wouldn't have a bar of that so I went and bought her some mutra-puffs, a rabbit treat.
The problem I'm having at the moment is that she won't take them out of my hand, I have to put them in her bowl for her. I'm still trying to get her to recognise that the click means that food is coming. Last night I tried her out of her cage and I clicked and she pricked her ears up and turned around but she wouldn't take the food out of her cage (she was stressing it was the end of her play time, which it was!) so I'm going to do another week of clicking and giving her treats in an empty bowl.
Molly has caught on what it means though cause she got sooooo cranky with me last night when the clicker started and so I have started with her also....she was thumping continously while I was doing it and wouldn't stop until she got some treats!
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
