Bird Training

Zumi's 3rd lesson on retrieving a bird.  Since making it really high energy and fun helped her so much I went out with the same plan.  Started with the mallard as it somehow is less gross for me to hold.  Started out a tiny bit skeptical but in about 1.5min of play and tiny open mouths she was actually starting to want to retrieve it by the end (yay!) I then switched for the pigeon with the bloody head.


Success!  Very proud of the Duck!  I'm sure it won't be too many more sessions before I have to completely switch tactics and focus on calm impulse control instead of revving her up.

And Vito was a great dog for his 2nd session.  Had a few tiny moments of wanting to feather pluck or shake, but mostly was in thinking mode.  Proud of the Toller too!
