hey everyone, wanted to give you all a quick update on Rocky & Daisy. I took a clicker class online at the end of October. It was so much fun, did lots of things with the donks, but my end goal was for both of them to load in the trailer easily ( and at liberty!)
Of course Daisy got it right away and hopped in on the 3rd day (first day with the trailer). She loves in so much I have a hard time getting her OUT of the trailer. I spent good deal of time this summer redoing my trailer, so happy to be able to finally use it for training!
Rocky was a bit slower, he didn't quite understand that I wanted all FOUR feet in the trailer. I got really stuck for awhile. at one point he thought i wanted the fronts in, the backs out and the backs doing a little 'dance' LMAO. so I had to rethink my training. I decided he'd get a jackpot for getting all four feet in the trailer, and it worked!! the last few training sessions he jumps all the way in now.
doing some targeting in the trailer
Having breakfast in the trailer yesterday!
Now i have to try to load both of them!! LOL
Just in time too, the donks have their first entertainment gig this week!! They'll be wearing pack saddles & my BF & i will be dressed as gold rush days prospectors!!
So excited and nervous at the same time!!!
