Well, Kiger is working on hanging upside down from the perch, and Max is working on going down the ladder...
Kiger is adorable when Kiger does 'wave'
He is a little confused with shake, so I will back track and work on that a bit more with him.
Max and the ladder...he was fine with touching the pointer last night but not so fine with following the pointer and going down the ladder. It was near the end of the session and he was a bit distracted by Kiger in the cage so I couldn't get far anyway. I aim to start the next session with a brief warm up and then go to working on going down the ladder.
I cant help but giggle a bit when Max shakes.
So Kiger knows: turn around, down the ladder/up the ladder, wave, and shake (kinda...)
We are working on shake, and upside down (where he hangs upside down from the perch.) My goal is to turn upside down into going around the perch in a loop...
And Max Knows: turn around, and shake. Working on down/up the ladder. Eventually I will work on wave with him but upside down is still a fair distance off in things I plan to train Max to do.
I really need to get my act together and work on teaching wings up/stretch. I'm concerned about starting a bicker match but I'd just have to be quick about treats...or something. I'm open to suggestions on how to work on this one.
