Nila and I are training again!

Post by InTheAir » Thu Oct 10, 2013 1:30 pm

After a few weeks off from training we had a go last night. He didn't try to boy dance at my hand at all! We do need to shapen up a bit on the cues, but he has no trouble remembering the tricks. I don't think we have even tried the ring on the stick one for months.

I think it might be safe to start training again on a daily basis. Yay!

Nila and I just tried a new trick. I got him a little tea set for Daves birthday, since Dave doesn't seem very impressed by it, I cracked it open and showed Nila how to put the tea cup on the saucer. Yes, I am scraping the bottom of the barrel for new tricks now! Any suggestions?

I vote for teaching Nila how to skateboard. :mrgreen:

Ooh or also a mini mr. Potato head that he can place the pieces on.

Teach him to match socks out of the laundry. Let him comb the room for small objects and drop them all in a basket on the table. Ask him to carry what he's given to the other person in the next room. Might as well make him useful!
