I've been struggling to teach Noelle that she can jump and hold a dumbbell at the same time. She always jumped over, ran straight to the dumbbell, grabbed it, ran toward the jump, carefully set the dumbbell down, and then jumped back over. Noelle told me that jumping while carrying a dumbbell is the leading cause of alien abduction.

Tonight, at Open class, Noelle raced over the jump at warp speed, grabbed the dumbbell, and then shot back over the jump to me WITH THE DUMBBELL in her mouth!!!! I almost fainted with joy.

Very nicely done! That's exactly what I wanted! You can outrun the aliens! Good girl!

I introduced scent articles a few weeks ago using a method I found on Karen Pryor's website.https://clickertraining.com/node/1121

I put a drop of vanilla extract on my hand, rubbed my hands until the vanilla disappeared, and then scented the article for the first time. I offered Noelle a paper towel with a drop of vanilla extract on it, let her sniff, click and treat. Next I let her sniff the scented dumbbell, click and treat. I then worked with Noelle on the floor. She had a choice of one dumbbell, the right one. Next I added a second dumbbell, the wrong one. Slowly I added more wrong choices.

Here's where we are now.

Will we ever compete in Utility? I don't know. We're so focused on Rally for now that I have no idea if CDX and UD are in our future. I do know, Noelle really likes the "find it" game.

I know how you feel because sometimes I think along the same lines. I can barely believe what Babykins and I have achieved. I’m taking it one step at a time and just letting it happen organically.

But you are an amazing trainer and you have an amazing bond with Noelle so I do have expectations that you will earn that utility title.

I think once we have Rally Champion, I'll think about what to do next. Could Noelle get a CDX and a UD? I don't know. I don't even really have much of a plan except to keep training, keep trialing, and see what happens. One good thing about going for RACH is Noelle is getting a whole lot of trial experience. By the time we do enter for CDX, Noelle will at least understand what trials are all about.

I'm doing what Catherine is doing and training Open and Utility exercises together as once seamless unit before we go to a trial. That way we can show in Open and Utility without having to stop and retrain. That's why I introduced scent articles before trialing in Open.

Ohhhhh, guess what, Skylar, it sounds like I am planning on competing in obedience. Gasp! Oh noes!

Hmmm... thinking about obedience, huh?

I have a copy of this and I have to confess I haven't started it yet. I was expecting something small and instead it appears to be QUITE comprehensive.

Hannah is a real science geek, clicker trainer extraordinaire. I think you might find much of it relatable.

Awesome Obedience

Of COURSE you're training all the exercises now. Why waste time? Some of them require many repetitions to be fluent anyway. Our current challenge is the go-out. I've broken it out of the directed jumping part and work on it separately. Once he's out there, he gets the right jump (at least most of the time).
