Having trouble getting Cassie to hold her feet while standing…lazy girl wants to sit always. Recommendations?
Yes, that can be tricky in the beginning sometimes. Did you try it using a target?? Try to hold your target about chest level (or a tiny bit lower) and click the moment that she lifts her paw. If she sits just toss a treat behind her and let her come back to try again. Of course really make a huge deal out of it anytime she lifts that paw without sitting. Then fade the target really quickly — it is really only to get that first paw lift.
@jordan_Biggs Must admit that this was the hardest trick to date to teach Judge. I think today it might have clicked.
Hi @Jordan Biggs Here is a bit of improvement today. Now to try and and get him to do it more than once 😮
YES! This is a tricky one. But so much fun!! It looks great. Do the best that you can to get a second reward in if he holds it up any longer than he is, even if just for a moment. That will REALLY help build more duration to the behavior.
