Thanks........Tricia’s idea of putting bacon in a plastic bag with kibble has worked out great.
He loves that kibble.........plus I thought the bacon was good to!!!!. Yum! It’s been awhile since I had bacon.....

So we are still practicing........hopefully you will notice our improvement. My timing with the clicker is getting better.
Hoss gets excited when I pick up the clicker........ready to work. I do similar practices in different rooms of the house. He is progressing........

what I like the most about this book and its practices is the simplicity and quick results. So far ...I am still reading.........I will continue to do this game as seen on todays video in different places ....as he gets better might take it outside where he will have more distractions....but doing the same exercise. Even mixing it up by using different items for him to touch for another week.

Looking ahead:

As I read into the next chapter in my training book “When Pigs Fly” the next step will be for me to sit back.....in a chair.........with a pocket full of treats and let him execute this game with me on his own. The goal of all of this is to keep his attention on me and encourage Hoss to think......what must I do to get the treat......and make it happen.
By then I should have a pup thats paying attention and ready to work. He should figure out what to do quickly to score his treat. Yummmmm bacon flavored kibble!!!! Works great Tricia.

Well this was a good week...although finding Hoss is getting distracted with my treat bag. So I took a step back......found a video from Kikopup....that illustrated how to reward Hoss when he looks at me and leaves the bag alone.............so worked with this exercise for a few days ....he picked up real fast things come to him a lot quicker when he ignores the treat pouch and watches me........I am hooked on this style of training.........ignore treat bag......looks to me........click....then treat.....yep......this is fun.
