1st July, 2017 Joining the Dots

Clicker training Barney hasn't been easy since he turns his nose up at most nuts and mixes. Yesterday I had to give up trying to make any progress since he wasn't interested in the grass nuts, and instead kept everything low key and rewarded him with a lovely rub and massage.

He's an affectionate soul and did as much as he could. We were watched carefully by the two Shires.

Today he decided that he really likes Barley Rings and after that everything was fairly straightforward as they motivated him to try to stay. Headcollar on and off, and swinging about a bit, six times.

I spent my first Saturday morning off in what felt like a hundred years at the Woodgreen Community Shop where they were holding a Pets' Day.
