|Gah! Whenever I either say "agility"(Yes, he does some kitty agility. Just basics, though. Like running through a box, jumping on the bed and off, etc..) or "training time" he automaticaly runs under the bed, and won't come out for about 30 minutes! After when he *FINALLY* comes out, he acts bratty and doesn't even try to learn anything. This cats like a 4 year old human, lol.
Sometimes I can get something out of him, and today I got him to learn three new tricks. Involving treats, of course.
Anyhow, he learned..
"Milo And His Friends"
Where he "buys" 6 treats, and divides them equally between him and his two "friends". I stack two treats in a pile, and put the three piles in a row. Then I point to them, and show him which pile is HIS and which piles are his FRIENDS. He glances back and forth, from pile to pile, until he finally sticks his paw out at his pile, and knocks one treat down, eats it, and grabs the other treat.
"Which One is Two?"
Where I put four treats down, putting two in a pile. So, there is two treats sitting seperatly, and two piled on eachother. I then ask him to pick which one is two treats, and he sticks his paw out at the two piled on eachother, and pulls one treat towards him, and then eats it, and then gets the other treat.
And finally, theres,
"Grab Two Peices"
Where I set out five peices of treats, and then he glances around the pile, until he finally sticks his paw out, grabs one, eats it, and then grabs one more, and sits down.
Milo is very intelligent, but he doesn't have the will to learn that much, you know? We've been working on the above tricks for days, until he finally got them today.
And believe me, he REALLY did learn them. If my camera recorded longer than 10 seconds, I would record it and post it somewhere, so you all could see.
I still have to finish his agility today, but I thought might as well get training out of the way!(Which takes much longer and is much harder!)
