I hope this isn’t a silly question but in the video you are rewarding a lot for keeping the paw on the target? Do we not want them to keep their paw up not touching the target? Maybe this is the start and it will continue later in the class?
Thanks,
Patty

@jordan-briggs. Im starting with front paws. Not really sure how to get back paws. Will that come in another lesson?

Here is Trooper with Wave – I use Footsie for right paw lift, and paw for left paw lift. I really like the idea of 1,2,3,4. I am now working on his 3rd back paw lift and have not assigned any name for the cue yet. https://vimeo.com/288440342/b02f9a376c

I am having trouble getting one of my dogs to even lift her paw. My other two are doing great. Any ideas to help her lift her paw?

Hi @Jordan Biggs,

Here is Judge with his wave. He likes to use his left paw more but does offer the right 1 in 4 times typically. I will start adding the number for the paw to see if I can get it more even.

Lulu was taught shake a paw when she was young so it didn’t take long to transform that into a wave. I added a physical cue pretty quickly of me waving a finger at her. I wanted her to wave the paw on the same side as my finger was waving. She caught on pretty quickly.

Tried to increase the duration. Also started to use the 1-2 cue. I have a question about using the same hand or switching hands. Right now I change hands if I want the other paw up. So as I sit in front of her, if I wave the finger of my right hand, I want her to mirror me and wave her left paw and if I wave the finger of my left hand I want her to wave her right paw. Is that a good idea or will this be confusing in the long run — should I just… Read more »

So I dumped the verbals for a while and tried to get her to keep her paw up and possibly keep it higher. Used a clicker for some reps and my verbal yes marker for others. She did keep it up longer than in the previous session but I had just a bit of success with it being held high. Not sure what I need to do for her to keep it high instead of just hanging there. Suggestions?

We made some headway on the wave today!! Pretty happy with this session. Lulu’s keeping the paw up higher and for longer!! Now I just have to put it on cue! And have a different cue for each paw!
