In our last video we worked on our mat training. Now we are moving on to the next step.
After improving on our mat training I show him where I want him to come stand when I finally get around to calling him. I reward him for stepping up onto the wooden platform. Then I stand him back on the mat… and reward him for coming before I call. I’m a terrible trainer. But. Well. Anyway.
He was where I wanted him so we went to work on the next step. Sitting down on the platform I ask him to target the bit again. After rewarding him a few times for dropping his head clear down and mouthing the bit I start to ask for more. Until he takes the bit all the way in. Soon he’ll be putting it on all by himself!
