Guest johnnydrum Posted July 6, 2016 Share Posted July 6, 2016 Sasha my newly adopted 2 year old, is in every sense a delight. I am completely smitten by her, and want her to enjoy "us" as much as we enjoy her. Two weeks into the adoption and sensing a lull in her alertness, I wanted to bring a little enthusiasm into her (very) early training, so after reading/watching clips and info, I purchased a "clicker" (the little hand held training device) It quickly became apparent that I had made a huge rookie error with the introduction of the clickerShe completely froze, and wouldnt even take the treat...even worse, after 3-4 clicks she wouldnt even come into the room, and was soon in "freeze mode"Seeing her distress , the clicker was abandoned and hid in the cupboard after about 3 minutes.The Poor girl was so sheepish for about an hour afterwards....I was so cross at myself. Only a lengthy snooze snapped her out of it.I learned a lesson today that these beautiful creatures are very very sensitive souls....so its belly rubs only tonight, and tomorrow is a new day.
