Well as the title would imply, we took the dogs out to the training center to work on their teeter performances. I brought my husband so that I could have someone restrain Miles while I recalled him up the teeter. I wanted to see if there was a big difference with his performance between the way I had been doing it by myself and the tunnel and with restraint and no tunnel. I also wanted to continue to decrease how far he went up the plank before I let go. For Rue I wanted to do more of the bang game and some handling.
Miles did great! I am no longer holding the teeter at all. As soon as his weight starts to move the board I let go! Here he is on the wooden teeter both with the tunnel and with restraint. I don’t think there is much of a difference here:
And one set on the aluminum teeter with restraint:
Rue and I did some slow motion handling with me walking and using treats which I didn’t get on video. She really liked that! Here’s her teeter bang…I definitely think I need to lower it more to get her hopping on it with all 4 feet again.
