Tricks | 52 Week Project | Week 43

Hi everyone!

Oh, it’s getting close to Halloween. We are really excited and the theme this week for the 52 Week Project is Tricks. Which is perfect because Boo plans on going trick or treating and I let him know he’s got to hold his own treat bag.  So we’ve been working on the trick, “hold it.”

Of course it’s a 10 second trick right now. He spits things out pretty fast.

“Give me five” You can see he’s already looking forward to his reward. Honestly, the best trick I could think of would be if he let me cut his nails.

But Boo says, “no.”

This one is, “touch.” Boo Radley uses his nose to touch my hand, we are working on transferring the touch skill so that he can learn to turn the lights on and off. I’ll let you know if that ever works! In the mean time it’s great to get him to concentrate on me when we are working on his training.

The last one is, “stay.” He does, unless he doesn’t want to. It’s another short term trick, he can stay about 30 seconds if he’s really excited. If he doesn’t really care too much about the reward he stays a little bit longer.

Good job, Boo!
