Amid all the March celebrations and get-togethers, I've had my family visiting from out-of-town. New friends in the house? Ruby was overjoyed! (To put it mildly.) Everyone had a lot of fun and it was also a great opportunity for Ruby to get some training in with new people.
My nephews are very quick learners and take to things right away. Like, for example, skiing. They are 13 and 11, and have been skiing a total of three days in their young lives. By that third day they were flying down the black diamond runs, skiing moguls, and making jumps. I am such a non-skier that I don't even know if I phrased that right, but if I didn't, they'll let their ol' aunt know – right, boys?
So, having conquered the Rocky Mountains, learning to master the clicker was a piece of cake. The kids were quick, marked the behavior when they should, and saw how easy and fun clicker training is.
Working on the focus exercise, along with Snoopervisor Kiva.
A nice down.
He's really got her attention.
Great job! I also had him put on a mask to see how she'd react. There was lots of giggling (both human and puppy), so A+ on that one!
Thanks for your help, boys! Ruby had a great time with you and learned a lot!
