So, I need some assistance. I've been working with Mud on some service/assistance tasks, and quite frankly I don't have enough hands. For instance, I recently taught her to take my socks off and pick up anything I drop. Well, with the socks I had clicker in one hand, treats in my lap, and had to hold one hand out for her to give me the sock. So click....lapse in time while I put either clicker or sock down and fumble for a treat, then reward while Mudflap stares expectantly at me. Surprisingly enough, this is working. Mud is patient and is getting the concept very easily. She learned the sock trick in about 3 tries, despite my fumbling. Now we're just perfecting the return of the sock. With picking up anything I drop, I have clicker in one hand, treat bag hooked on my pocket, and one hand ready to receive the item she's returning. I have tried putting a few treats in the same hand as the clicker, but there's still a time lapse between clicking and resituating the clicker to give a treat. With both tricks, I have tried putting the clicker under my foot so I can click and have plenty of hands--I got this from one of Supernaturalbc2009's videos; it was something she suggested. Personally I'm having issues with this, lol, I just can't seem to position the clicker/my foot right to click at the right moment. As for using a marker word to replace the clicker, honestly I don't think fast enough for this. I've tried, lol. I'm so concentrated on the behavior and guiding Mud in the right direction, by the time she does it right I'm thinking "YES! She did it! OH WAIT, marker word!" and by the time the message gets from brain to mouth, it's too late. Lol. Like I said, she's not having any problems getting it, but I know I could do better. Any suggestions?
