We did a truffle session tonight with the focus of building duration at the target and using the frisbee as a reward. Cricket is getting so fluent in being able to move from the frisbee reward to working again. I was going to re-prime her before the second target in both searches, but she just started working again. I didn’t even cue her.
There are two searches in this video, one on leash one off-leash. Both searches have two hot targets. First hide the targets cooked for 15+ minutes, second hide targets cooked for about 5 mins. I really think this practice is paying off – she seems to be getting more engaged with staying at the source. Hopefully she’ll start to figure out that as soon as I put the truffle in my pocket she gets her frisbee – she may have already 🙂
