This is not going well for us. Petey starts in the middle but then circles both objects. I have been treating back into the middle, but I worry that I am doing more luring than training.

Hi Anna – I have a question. I have just started the turning around obstacles unit. It is a work in process at this point. I am also taking Daisy’s foundation 1 course at the same time. We are just starting circling around a cone. She is asking that we not add a cue right now and just have him offer. Do you have any words of wisdom to training these two exercises at the same time?

Thank you so much for your very prompt answer πŸ˜€

Today Lulu and I tried turning around objects for the first time with a left and right verbal. I had to help her at the beginning of each side but then she started getting the hang of it. As usual she does better when she is on my left. But she did eventually have some success on my right. I was pretty happy with our first session on this! Is there anything I should be doing differently?

We had our second session today using objects. I decided to start with dog on right since that seems to be our weak side. I added the occasional multiples and also sometimes dropped the toy instead of handing it to her. This is clearly a work in progress. Sorry that my videos are long but I’m trying to show you the ups and downs of a session without too much editing so as to give you a true picture of where we are at in our progress. I was pleased that once Lulu was turning in the right direction, the… Read more Β»

Enzo is doing great with this! I think he has it!

He also is turning in some extra credit; I can stand behind him and he can discriminate on verbals alone. πŸ™‚

Here’s our video turning around objects. I filmed both left & right around both objects but only posted one each as an example.

Here is Enzo’s Left/Right over a wing and jump. Since I filmed this he has progressed to being able to do this with me standing behind him. He did it perfectly today! I just didn’t get it filmed. πŸ™‚

Hi Anna! We made great progress in the previous lesson so jumped ahead to turning around around objects (cones). I placed the cones close together to support her turns around them. Belle’s really thinking in some places. πŸ™‚
Here’s our first attempt:

Hi Anna, I have a question – I have been using Cik (anti-clockwise) and Tap (clockwise) with Dream as my cues to turn around objects… so in other words not “Left” and “Right” although left/right are the cues I used to teach Dream to move in a circle (i.e. just circling on her own without moving around any object). So I’m kinda stuck now…. which cue to use for this exercise… I would like to use “left”/”right” as verbal cues to mean turn left/right and take the left/right obstacle rather than circle a wing for a tight turn. Any thoughts… Read more Β»
