So it’s been awhile since I have updated on how my learning project is going. Since I live in Saskatchewan and it’s winter, it’s been freezing outside and not warming up. So it has been a challenge to go outside and practice Ryder’s fetching skills.
I finally had to bright idea to just practice inside! (What a shock haha!) I was using the tips from the Cesar and I also watched a great video (with the cutest puppy) that had great tips as well. There was also a tip on my last learning project blog post that really helped as well.
It took some trial and error but I think we have mostly mastered fetching inside. He still doesn’t know how to drop it when I say but when I grab it when it’s in his mouth he let’s me have it, most of the time! I feel like we have made a lot of progress and for now that is where I am going to leave fetching. I’m going to come back to it when it is a lot warmer outside and where he won’t lose his ball in the snow.
