Ren’s training update for weeks 14,15,16 Stand, out, settle, back up, paws up, around, Deep pressure therapy.
Stand: I started by luring Ren with a treat from a sitting to a standing position after she started to understand that I would click when she would stand with the hand signal.
Out: I use out to tell Ren to get out from an under. I again used luring to guide Ren out from under the chair, I use a pointed finger as my single for getting out or a flat hand using (touch).
Settle: Going on to a mat and staying, settle is a relaxed type of stay. This is good for going to the movies or being at a restaurant.
Back up: Walking backwards in front of her. Now the hand signal is my hand flicking backward.
Paws up: back end awareness. Putting paws up on the book and walk around.
Around: I use this to tell her to go around the area.
DPT: I wrote an entry here
