Just back from our squirrel hunting loop around prospect park. Many stellar squirrel spottings and chases. Fantastic looks back at me checkins for permish after seeing the squirrels and strong or much stronger recalls after the chases. I'd gotten a little down on the premack value of late because she was all wait I hear you but let me just check this one other tree first and today she was making the good choice. I mean it would look like she was thinking about one more tree but she would come running back to me anyway.
(Plus we were THISCLOSE to getting busted today. She had just come back to me when one of those little police scooter things came out of the woods path. It may be just a matter of time before we get caught... The Bonnie and Clyde of squirrel chasing In the park.)
We've been working on recalls for meals. Probably helps. And we've been playing the table game we learned from Soshana. Because of her no can do down on table in trial behavior last three trials. Perhaps I will see some off course tables now? I don't know. She likes the table games.

Nice! Stella certainly has a positive connection with the table!

It's a puzzle. I don't know if these games will fix it. Because she will down in classes and home, but suddenly not in trials... I guess whats different is that its her choice to down in these new games and maybe thats all we needed. One of these days I will enter another trial and we will see... Soshana suggested I enter USDAA Intro and take a toy or UKI and try that and then the next step would be without a toy and if she doesn't down (you know in less than the 15 seconds she takes now), take her out...

always something to figure out to keep it interesting...
