Advanced Hides Video. I have been shaping Cheyennes alert which will be tapping her foot where the truffles will be found and you can see the beginning of this at the end of the video.
Also i am rewarding at the site of the scent but when i tried to capture that on video i kept droipping the treat/reward……so excuse the mess….haha.
Harder hide with an easter egg with holes in it and trufle oil.
Easy box hides
Well i took my videos but i think i am technology impaired as i can’t figure out how to post them here. i’ll keep working on it.
I haven’t had much time to access the internet over the last two weeks. My training is progressing and i’ll be making a video tonight or tomorrow. Cheyenne has figured out the point of our training and is getting good at easy box hides and we are moving to more advanced hides.
Currently i do training at night and sometimes a small training session in the morning before we leave for the day.
We have not developed an alert yet. I am hoping that with the more advanced hides she will start to mark an alert for me to shape.
I just finished gathering all of my materials and i am practicing my clicker training. Jeanne is the clickmaster in our house so i need a bit of work polishing my timing. I will be shooting a video this weekend so you should see it Sunday night.
Cheyenne and i are really excited for this class. Cheyenne is a 10 year old Australian Shepherd and we both participate in agility events throughout the year. In the past i have hunted for morel mushrooms and had considered training Cheyenne to help me hunt for them. I love truffles much more and cannot wait to go hunting!
Today i visited pike place market and bought my truffle oil and several white truffles for training. Once i have my list i’ll share my tools of training with you.
