Laurelin Posted March 16, 2015 Report Share Posted March 16, 2015 Does anyone have some good resources or suggestions? I've never dealt with teeter issues before. Background: We have started Hank with wobble boards and tippy plank type stuff and that went just fine. He did the bang game from the side of the teeter fine. It wasn't till this week that we have realized that he is somewhat nervous about the teeter. We were asking for contact behaviors at the end of the teeter (with it dropping just a few inches). He will bang it down then jump off as fast as possible. At first we thought he was just wild but after some time realized he is not wanting to stay put on the teeter. I think he is mildly unsure but it may be lack of understanding criteria and thinking he should just jump and bang it down. Generally he is a very fearless dog who flings himself at everything. So I am not sure where to go from here. I think I will have to build or buy something to work on outside of classes. I just want to go at a very slow pace and make things fun for him. Do you think I can get by with a smaller teeter? The full size ones are super expensive! Right now the only 'contact obstacle' I have is a contact training plank.
