We did more contact training yesterday. I intended to do distraction training with dogwalk, but he was flying off the end. There are a handful of causes:
1) He really really really doesn't know it.
2) We were using a toy and the last MANY sessions were using food.
3) He was sitting in the car for a really long time before training
4) It was the first thing we worked on.
And really 2-4 show that he doesn't get it. But they are also variables we haven't incorporated into the training yet.
We did Aframe with distractions and later went back to just reinforcing dogwalk.
I put my camera on a different setting than earlier in the week and tried placing it at a few different angles.
Here's a video from the side. Can you click as he's going down and his back feet are apart, landing separately, NOT landing together?
The first part repeats a few times and then the clips are all played at half and quarter speed. It seemed really hard yesterday but a lot easier now!
