This morning I didnt have much time before work so we did a bit of free shaping - 1 dog, one step stool and clicker and treats and off we go. Basically the dog gets a click and treat for interacting with the step stool, so what did we get out of this session Lots of behaviours - front paws up, back paws up, 4 paws up, a bend, a pivot, a front paw tap, back leg hoike, chin and a turn around the stool both dogs love free shaping it really works their brain so is great mental stimulation.

I take 10 minutes to do a little training before work. I work one then the other or both together its good for them to take turns the one thats not working is either shut behind the gate or lays on their raised bed and both get rewarded.

Another Rainy Day
This mornings tricks before work - I have been teaching Huslu to hug my leg and have started to build up her nose touch ready to teach her Nudge and Whisper. Uschi wanted to join in hug and nudge just to show Huslu how its done.

Positive training wins 
So what does this mean ? I train my dogs with positive training methods only, this means there are no negatives. They are rewarded for the good behaviour and the wrong behaviour is ignored for example if i am training my dog to go through my legs if they go round me instead i just do not reward them and set them up to succeed the next time maybe going back a step just to make sure they succeed.
