Chase that food
Today I decided to practice on some advice I got at last training session last Sunday. Grom really likes food. He acts like we never feed him!
Since he has been doing terrible at playing. Someone suggested that I get him to chase food in my hand. Grom had a pretty good time running around trying to nip at my kibble filled fists. Drawback, he has sharp little teeth!
Grom also got food when he gave me a few good barks. Its just a starting point for him to learn indication. We want him to bark on command. Giving him food when he barks is a good start. I finished his training by throwing the remaining of food in his crate. I want him to go in there readily. Food will do that for him.
He spent the day at work with me. He did fairly well, but whined a bit when I went upstairs. Arrrrgh with the whining!
I am really proud of him. He is no longer afraid of turtles. Yay! (Just stop trying to eat turtle poo, thanks)
