I missed my training very much whilst I was a cone head. Before I got my new ters we started working on shaking my head no, like Sizzle can do. Mum used the tips in this video that mum recently found on Youtube, the lady seems very clever.
Hello, Mum Dee here. Sorry to bore all you dogs, I guess this talky section is more for the humany friends. You can listen to the video Ludo linked to to see how we learnt this, basically we use a skill Ludo already has, to be able to touch a mark with his nose. Then you get two marks and Ludo is supposed to back and forth between them and slowly move away from the marks until he can do it by himself. I’ve also added in a little growl which I ‘captured’ (fancy clicker word) whilst he had his cone on as we couldn’t do much else! I’ve used the cue word of ‘huh’ for shaking his head, because I figure I can add the word huh onto any question and he can say no to it. Cheating you see. I think I’ll make a nicer video then enter this into Gus and Waldo’s competition, what do you think? This was a fun one for me, you should see some of the out takes, I don’t include them cos I try to keep the learning videos short. Maybe I should do a blooper reel.
Anyway, here’s the video. I’ve put the finished trick at the front then the learning stuff afterwards so you don’t need to watch the progress, just the trick. 🙂
p.s. His Dancy feet make me laugh!
