I present to you.....
The first *completed behavior that I taught by clicker training. In fact, it's the first "new" thing she's learned since all that sit, down, come, and stay stuff back in those puppyhood days.
*I'm defining "completed" as a new behavior that I either molded or captured, and then named, and she responds to the command successfully when I'm showing her off to strangers.
Puppyhood lament tangent - so hard to believe she's 7 months - I looked down one day and saw a lanky teenager. Where did the puppy go that I could scoop up and cuddle in one hand? With a short cute nose and big ears that dragged in her food dish?
Anywhoo - I showed her off the health center on campus and she performed the pout like a charm. I'm ready to mark this trick as showoff ready!
Of course, when I tried to get a pretty picture on the lawn tonight, she gave me this:
Froggy - a behavior that we are currently capturing but I'm not even CLOSE to being able to put in showoff category yet!
