I’m a bit behind on the blog posts, but I’m keeping up with the challenge of training every day.
The videos are waiting to be edited, but will show up little by little.
Today’s challenge was the duration marker or ”keep-going signal”. First I had to teach Rusa to bow and then to keep it for a few seconds using ”Braa..” as a duration marker. It worked out pretty well in the one session we had and will continue the project after the 30 days.
In the film I also put my duration work on Karma’s indication (for scent detection). I’m trying different physical duration signals to start with since she let go of focus and got frustrated with the verbal one.
Also totally removed the secondary reinforcement signal (click och ”yes”) since it was only disturbing her. Instead I tried to work with the reward placement and duration.
