We are working on “offering” behaviours we learned in class. This involved having the pup “offer” a behaviour while the raiser remained still. We would place Rena in a side position while the raiser remained seated. A perch device (stool) was placed a few feet in front of us. When Rena made any movement towards the stool we would click and mark her movement. This was done every day for a week and it didn’t take long for Rena to move from a side position to a perch and back to a side with no prompting from us.
