Заметки, заметки, заметки…

Все о том и тоже, об успехах Йипы в ее тренировках.

Конечно же, от Кэролайн. А потому — на английском.

In spite of being sick over the past few weeks you have made great progress with Yepa! Here are the different things you have achieved together recently, and in our session today.


It was exciting to see Yepa working with the door opener – at last, she understands how to press the metal panel firmly, and she is being successful almost every time now. It was fun to see her press with her nose until she finds the sweet spot on the metal panel, then look at the door as it opens, then look back to you for her reward. Well done, both of you – this has taken a lot of practice and patience!

Get It/Bring It
Yepa obviously enjoys picking up (Get It) the rope and handing it to you (Bring It). She is much more accurate with this – she places it in your hand most times now, and appears to understand both cues.

She had been having trouble diversifying this task to other objects so we tried a few training aids – for example, we tied the rope to the plastic holder attached to your clicker. This helped her get used to the new sensations and sounds associated with this object, and she quickly began picking it up and giving it to you. Soon she was able to pick it up with the rope removed. Next we tried soft objects like dish towels, which she had no trouble at all with. Then we tried objects with a firmer “mouth feel” – a plastic lid, a soft camera case, and a leather wallet carrier. She did well with all of these except the leather carrier– which was too heavy at this point. So we removed the wallet from inside the case, to make it lighter and easier for her to pick up. She did better but needs practice with this. The key here is to gradually introduce levels of difficulty, moving from the known to the unfamiliar in small steps.

Down We worked on Sit then Down, changing positions and working on improving the reliability of her response. After all the other things she has been learning, she seemed to regress in her willingness to lie down on cue, but today she picked it up again and by the end of the session was lying down nicely on cue, both from Sit position and sometimes from Stand. She practiced on carpet and on linoleum.

Результаты есть, в общем.
