For Molly, a platform is more challenging for both of us, though we are working hard on that. I thought a better fit for Molly would be a pivot platform. She has been heavily rewarded for pivoting to heel position or just for spinning around, so we are working through that. I have also been slipping on videoing my training sessions, but I decided tonight I needed to do so. These are our 3rd and 4th sessions of working on this skill and we are enjoying ourselves. I wanted to look at my timing as well as if I was clicking the position that I actually wanted.
And I thought, why not post my unedited training sessions. They aren't too long! The camera angle kind of sucks. By the second video I feel like Molly is definitely catching onto the concept of what I want. She absolutely cannot handle me having the treats in my hands - they have to be in my sweatshirt pocket -it is just too distracting for her at this time. I am trying to give multiple treats in the position I will eventually want her head to be in. And I note that I need to do some reps with myself moving in the opposite direction (counter clockwise vs clockwise.)
