LOL did say I was half asleep Great name, even if it does confuse some half asleep dummies I think, now I'm more awake Sit Pretty would be a good one for Maeve as she already does this, so can 'capture' that.LOL Tag is his nickname it's short for Tagalong. The first thing I would teach him is spin. It's an easy trick.
Thank you will use Tuna, I think even my two fuss pots will like that Yes, Maeve swipes your hand quite well already so with click/treat she'll be awesome Now, if I can only stop Ra Kismet and Maeve playing chase - we just may have a 'double act'Yeah, sit pretty is a good trick to teacha cat. My cat loved to do it. Cats do a sit pretty and at the same time swat at your hand, LOL
Good treat: Tuna
I've seen the chickens being trained, amazing!!!!!!!!! I adore chickens (partner doesn't) but would love to have some one day and train them too - after I have got Ra Kismet used to them - he's never seen a chickenSooooo happy all's been going well!!! Behind on threads, really busy work week, will catch up more this weekend. You and Ra Kismet both rock!!! Kudos to both of you!!!
As far as clicker training - you can clicker train most anything with the ability to think. There are actually "chicken camps" given here ( USA - not sure about other countries) given by professional trainers, where one works with chickens. You really want to improve your clicker training skills? Clicker train a chicken. Clicker training got it's origins in the marine world, being used to train whales and dolphins. Think about it - a little piece of plastic having that much influence over a whale. Truly amazing.
Thank you Dogster I too am totally amazed, the kids learning so well Wish you could fly over and meet him, he's such an adorable little fellow and he'd love to meet you too (so would I of course). I'm NOT exaggerating how well he's doing, not worth doing that, as how can I get help/advice by exaggerating? He does learn quickly, from the moment I got him, I somehow KNEW he was one VERY smart, thinking puppy LOL, he knew just how to win my partner over who had said NO he goes back at first Rakins turned on the 'charm offensive' just at the RIGHT moment I didn't have to do a thing because believe me NO WAY was Ra Kismet going back, partner could go but NOT Ra Kismet!!!!!!!!! Funniest sight ever, partner lying on his back on the ground making 'puppy noises' - Ra Kismet was a tad wary of men when I first got him - I didn't know how to keep a straight face and ignore the performance but thought it best to allow Rakins to 'do his thing'. LOL he won, partner adores him, even if partner isn't too good at dog training.OMD, the progress he's making is unbelievable. I wish I could fly over there to Australia and see how well he's doing!!!!
