Today I wanted to work more on walking past interesting things and keeping a heel position. So I put a bunch of crumpled paper on the floor to tempt Hestia, and she didn’t even look at them she was so involved in the heel!
Then I put some food items down, and she did start to go over to one of them. I said leave-it and then made her spin before giving her a treat. I’m trying to unchain the sniffing behavior from the leave-it behavior. She did a very good job. I can see I’ll have to up the ante a bit in the future!
