    Morning everyone,

    David and I have been clicker training for attention on us since February both on and off lead. We live in rural Hampshire so the wildlife is abundant. This morning there were lots of birds in the field which always interests Charlie a LOT but David got some C&T in, he had to admit he cheated just a little and said his name first but then Charlie looked without prompting for a couple more.

    Can't say it had quite the same affect when a rabbit appeared but Rome wasn't built in a day :rolleyes: Work is being done on sitting watching rabbits and deer too :eek: xx

    Oh good boy Charlie! Fab news...I agree completely Rome wasn't built in a day, sometimes it takes months and months to train against a strong impulsive behaviour. Really really good work! :)
