From Kim Cassidy:
This is such a funny story that I thought I would share it with you. It happened almost two years ago but I'll never forget it.
I was training my then 6-month-old female Boxer pup Tir na nOg and I was attempting to teach her to "Stay" on her bed. She knew the cue to "Go to her Bed" and if I asked for it she would do it.
This one night I happened to have ordered some takeout food and was sitting down on the couch to watch TV and eat. I asked Tir to go to her bed and while EXTREMELY reluctant she did it. She kept staring at me and wanting to get up to come over but I would give her the "Look" and she wouldn't move.
All of the sudden she let out a snort and got up, grabbed her bed in her mouth and dragged it over to the couch under my feet and sat back down on it. Perfectly positioned to "Stay" on her bed and still be able to share my dinner. CLICK!! How could I not laugh and reward that, talk about ingenuity.
Well I hope you enjoyed the story, it really shows how clicker training helps the animals to puzzle out what works best.
