Brindle girl’s Thursday sessions!
I need to lower criteria a little, and not move the collar quite as close to her face as I did in the last rep of Wednesday’s final session.
I also decide to make a change to her start button behavior.
I try to change the start button from glancing up into my face to looking in my general direction.
Since putting the collar on her will require a combination of accepting the collar near her neck and accepting my touch, I mix things up and have a session of just touching her neck/head/shoulder/ears.
This session is a good illustration of the classical association that has been created: anytime I touch her, she expects food.
I try a new approach: wearing the collar like a bracelet or glove. This works really well!
Working up to touching her with the sleeve of my sweater as a precursor to being touched by the collar.
