So who wants a good laugh?

Post by angel894 » Mon Jul 05, 2010 5:26 pm

A few days ago we started clicker training with Baxter. I did the whole click-treat thing and he caught on quick! So over the last few days we've been working on some basics. Sit, stay, down, leave it and drop it. The last two are very important with a toddler in the house. I do training after the kid is in bed, or nothing will get done. Anyway, Daddy left the clicker where our son could reach it. I'm in the kitchen and I hear "Gabe, drop it!" Only our kid is not well trained. So I hear giggles and clicks like mad. A grown man running. And as soon as the first click hit, the dog came to me. I remember reading you should treat even on accidental clicks so the dog doesn't get confused. So I'm tossing the dog treats, my 2 year old is running and clicking and my husband is running after him fussing for our son to stop and drop it. It felt like it went on forever but I think it was only a minute or two. I ended up having to cut down on Bax's dinner...

Oooooooops! Start clicker training that kid to drop and leave too :lol:

Top marks to you though for thinking to reward Baxter for hearing the clicks - really good stuff!

Kudos for thinking fast on your feet and dealing with giving Baxter treats so as not to ruin the click! I guess you were ready to add distractions to your training! :lol: :lol: :lol:
