Stuck on what behaviour to train next?

Have you ever taken a break from training? And/or struggled to find your mojo regarding what behaviours you want to train next?

This was precisely my predicament recently! First, I had to personally pause training due to needing to prioritise some other areas of my life! And then, when it came time to begin again, I wanted an easy and fun project to work on to help me get back into the flow of daily training sessions!

This was when I learned about ‘Trick titles’ and consequently Fibi-dog, and I had a lot of fun earning our first ‘Novice Trick Dog title.’

To earn the novice title, you have to demonstrate 15 behaviours from an extensive list of options [we only did 13 – as two of our behaviours counted towards two points due to being from more advanced ‘trick dog title lists’].

Below is a compilation video of the 13 we choose!

This was a TONNE of fun training FIbi to do all the required behaviours [using positive reinforcement] to earn this title!

Fibi & I are now looking forward to moving to the ‘Intermediate level.’

So if you are looking for something to do over the holiday season or are just a bit stuck with what behaviour you would like to have a go @ training next – I encourage you to consider getting your first trick title as one possible option! See more >>> HERE.
