In last week's class, we practiced shaping our dogs to walk around a chair. Mushroom gave up and sat in the chair instead. This week, we worked on getting them to spin in circles. Mushroom would spin halfway and then go back the way she came. I ended up having to hold the treat next to her butt to lure her, and even then, she'd sometimes just look at the treat as if she was deciding whether it was really worth it to do something as difficult as turn.
We have the next two weeks off, so her class resumes January 8th. In the meantime, we will be trying to teach her to turn. We've also given her the nickname Moolander.
Does your dog have that one thing they just can't do?
