A quick click

Today, I think I did something good. I know intellectually about the use of pacing to manage pain. I'm still very high on the pain scale, but I decided that if I don't do something, even if I try to push really hard through all of it, I'm going to be in trouble. Because at some point, my body will give out if I don't give it a break. So, anyway, I took a short break just now.

I was trying to figure out what I could do that was fun and productive at the same time. So, of course, I grabbed the
Clicker
and started working with Julio. We've been working on come off leash, which he's gotten pretty darn good at, so today we worked also on heel off leash. Using my hand as a target, I began shaping Julio to heel. And, it was pretty successful. Certainly, we didn't sspend a lot of time on it, but as Karen Pryor (can't remember how to spell her name right now), suggests, I kept it short and successful, and we ended on a high note.

So, I did something good for me and the pup. And that's definitely something for me to click about.

Blogging Study
Hi Nikkie,

I am contacting you regarding a blog survey I am conducting. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Mass Communication at Penn State and my dissertation project consists of a survey that looks at women bloggers’ perceived motivations for and effects of their blogging.

I am sending the survey to a number of bloggers, and I would like to invite you to participate in it as well. Participation should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. I would appreciate it tremendously if you would be willing to take the survey. If you decide to do so, please follow the link below:

I would be very happy to share the findings of my study with you once it is completed!

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Thank you in advance,

Carmen

question
Nickie, did Julio have an introduction to clicker-training as a pup? I was just wondering how far they go with newbie guide animals. The ones I've seen on the TV show (on Animal Planet) seem eager to learn and please their humans.

Here you go, Julio!
