Fun New Behaviors :-)

Syd is doing an excellent job of working for her meals. Thank goodness she's a dog who thinks kibble is just as exciting as cookies! She is just as enthusiastic about the last bite as the first. I don't thinkthat Syd is getting bored with our limited repertoire of behaviors, but I am!

The cure for both of us is to learn some new behaviors. We've added "jump in the box" where Syd will jump inside a rectangular frame of our stacking box. "Touch" hand targeting, as well as targeting a small paper plate. Pick up the plate, and my new personal favorite "Go through." For this, Syd will run through my legs, and then turn and pop her head back through and look up. Very cute, especially from a smiling, happy girl.
