A short part of our kennel training session we had this evening!
we are working on bringing value to the kennels (especially for Charlotte) in exciting environments. in this case it is the backyard and working with their raw! it's also super exciting for them when I'm working them at the same time.
we are also working on "you stay in your kennel even if the door is open and the other dog is being called". You may have noticed that I'm only treating the dog that is in the kennel, this excercise is just to show them that even when the other dog gets to go out you still get the food!!! and shows the second dog that when you go back in your kennel you also get food. basically the kennel means food and outside of the kennel isn't really exciting (at the moment) because you dont get food. I find it helps the dog appreciate the kennel even more and brings value to it immensely! Charlotte has always struggled with being kenneled up!
this will help for when we start toss and fetch, or any other event or time I would want them to be kenneled side by side.
my goal is to make them want to be in there because its valuable!
