Yup, I taught Jethro how to play Frisbee.
With clicker training.
In all of 10 minutes.
What a smart ass!
Being the easily amused person I am, I got to thinking about what tricks I could teach Jethro. Bowing, sitting, and all those shenanigans are too mainstream. Jethro is no mainstream mini. Jethro is a sassmaster who needs to channel his sass by doing something outside of the box. Jethro needs to play Frisbee.
I started out by just having him touch the Frisbee with his nose, just like targeting. After he got that down, I threw the Frisbee and had him run over and touch it with his nose. Cue a lot of treats, clicks, and praise. Once he got this down, I had him hold the Frisbee in his mouth. Furthermore, I threw the Frisbee and had him pick it up and bring it back.
Donkey playing Frisbee. Not something you see everyday, huh?
