| | some videos - & the missing FORM for the free lessons!
some videos from Canis -
I watched all 4 of "film #1" featuring the black F pup & the red platform - over the 1st 3 sessions, she was shaped to "find" Morten's left leg & stand closer to it, & by the 3rd, she targeted his leg with her right-side for assured contact. // I think the pup is a Flatcoat Retriever [at a guess], & altho i don't read Norwegian, am guessing she's about 3-MO.
#2 is a nosework test.
Film #3 is the same Flatcoat as in #1, as an adult?, or maybe she's a relative -
learning to LIE ON a light synthetic throw, then to grip & hold a napkin, then to roll fully over to her right & up onto her chest, & finally, putting them together - lie on the throw, pick up a hunk of cloth, & roll over, wrapping herself in it. // The first time she does the completed trick, the look on her face is so funny! - "OK! What do i get?..."
#4 is fetch a soda from the refrigerator
#5 is clicker with a horse -
IMO, not a good model to emulate. IME, that's a threat face at the start of the clip [clamped nostrils, ears flat, head snaked out & down] - she's threatening to bite. Even worse, IMO, she mugs the trainer / tries to TAKE food, vs wait to be given it -- a big no-no with these big, powerful animals.
observation: the trainer fumbles in her pocket for long seconds after each mark, & that may have created the ugly face & impatient manner - i don't know.
UPDATE! - I found the free lessons link!
at the bottom of this page of U-tube clips, in the right-hand corner, it says,
"Meld deg på gratis onlinekurs i klikkertrening!" which - per Google Translate - is,
"Sign up for free online course in click training!"
