Oh, I’m so happy to see you really interacting during the reward period!!!! Woohoo! Way to go, Launie. Yes, coordinating cameras, clickers and treats is difficult so it is best if you can have someone film or set up a tripod. That said, Fancy LOVED engaging with you! Did you notice her enthusiasm increased for the second search? At 1:12 of the second video you two were brilliant! That was a fantastic find and show me! Great job!
I’m inclined to say we might want to begin fading the clicker for Fancy a this point since there is duration involved in her alert and re-find now (which I’m still just thrilled about). She knows the scent and it would eliminate confusion about what exactly she is being rewarded for at this point…since it really is a chain of behaviors now. I’m going to put it out there and ask that Alana chime in on this subject too.
