Reply To: Curt Leitz & Mo


Here are Mo and I working on Week 3. I have added a couple boxes to make the hides a bit more complex, I have varied the pattern the boxes are in, I have worked Mo off-lead, I have required Mo to alert with a paw on the box, and I have refined my use of the cue word (“houby”).

I’ve noticed that Mo seems to do well, but approaches the hides with a bit less enthusiasm than he had in previous weeks. I have wondered if he might be getting just a wee bit bored with this level of work, but he may also simply be settling down a bit (in this context) from his crazy puppy enthusiasm.
