Zoeys latest training updates.

Post by borellar15 »

Here’s some clips of things Zoey and I have been working on. Shaped retrieve and her defense of handler position. As well as some photos of her doing bite work. We’ve been working her onto legs rather than bicep bites.

I usually do but when I don’t have it or if I’ve just got too much stuff in my hands (leash and ball in other) I just use “good” as moment marker and “yes” as release/reward marker
