Jess would do just about anything for a piece of cheese and most tricks would be conquered in the first few times and as all the books state food is the way for dogs to enjoy clicker training I started to think maybe Molly just wasn't the intellegent type of dog to be trick dog.
That was until a few weeks ago. As it was just me and Molly I decided to ask for a basic trick before every throw of a tennis ball and as she did it I'll click. She was incredible! She's now learnt tricks Jess hasn't and the enthusiam I get from her is just amazing - she seems to have so much fun, could play for hours and best of all, as soon as I pick up the clicker she looks so alert and happy and ready to train!
She's really doing well and now even Jess will do tricks to have a toy thrown (I know a TOY!!!). Of course, just like Molly does with food, she looses interest much sooner than she does when I have food but whilst clicker training Jess will actually play for an hour with a toy! I thought that would never happen!!
