HighDesertSpice Posted June 25, 2007 Report Share Posted June 25, 2007 Hailey's got touch down, sort of. So far, she follows my hand....so long as it is no further than 12" away. If I'm using string cheese (opposite hand, held behind my back out of sight), she touches. If not, she licks. I've noticed of late that I get touches--or licks as I can't see them-- on the back of my legs, or on my arms....from both dogs--voluntarily. We even have a new "presto tongue" trick: touch Hailey's nose (with no cheese around) and out comes her tongue. Really. I'm going to start using a clicker. What else can you recommend? Both dogs seem to be stuck on the short distance. I've been using simple "touch" and "touch leash" (using a leash in my hand). Neither dog will touch the item if it is, say, on the ground sans my hand, or if I'm holding it more than 12" away..... We've been working on this over the past couple of weeks. with several short but repetitive stints. Thanks for your advice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
