In the “exposure to new things” department, I introduced Voodoo to a sheet of aluminum foil and to a balloon. He wasn’t terribly impressed with either one. The clips in this video show the intro and go to the point where he lost interest. Both are quick clips. 🙂
I’ve also been working on his retrieve and he’s progressing really well! I started out with some crumpled foil because it’s lightweight and I can shape it into a size/shape that is easy for him- I made it kind of flat (& it’s good to get him used to metal in his mouth for utility articles) 🙂 Then switched to a craft stick, then used a pencil. He’s doing great at understanding the take and quiet/still hold by the third item.
This is where he chose to wait for me while I was in the bathroom this morning. In his little crate that is sitting on top of the treadmill 🙂
