SEE! I told you guys!!!
Maybe now you'll stop peeing on your clickers...
edit: training a sequence of behaviors like that is called "chaining". First teach first obstacle, give treat, then when he reliably and voluntarily gets through first one, add on second one so he has to both before he gets treat, then add third and so on. This works in field training, too!
I don't know about that ...I have never seen a squirrel proof bird feeder yet....
Chaining is the basic principle we use through out the whole training process...Beginning with sit and ending with water blinds....Each action taught should lead to the next...I have always used the picture of an upside down pyramid to illustrate how things fit together...It all starts with one command...Steve S
Stuff and nonsense.
You've all got it hopelessly wrong. How many more times do I have to tell you to read the squirrel?
That's a Force trained collar conditioned squiggle if ever I saw one. How many "factors" did it successfully negotiate on the way to the nut? You can't get a squiggle to do that without pressure, lots and lots of pressure. Otherwise he'd just refuse to go, wouldn't he? Training is all about pressure, right? I'll bet just out of camera shot there is a training kit of e-collarette, heeling pencil, and pimple collar.
It's certainly not a British squirrel; it's head is always up, never on the ground, and it didn't use its brains from the initial send out to run straight to the last pole and shin up it. This is a de-cheated squirrel people.
Very good point there Colonel ....I'm still laughing .....Made my day early today ....Thanks Steve S
Great eye Colonel Blimp!
The squirrel must have been put through FTP and the T (and TT?), then. I didn't notice any bugging, popping, flaring, or no goes.
This squirrel should have no trouble with a keyhole blind at 300 yards. I've heard that only collar-trained squirrels can have that skill. ;)
Looks like my daughter's agility training class ...
