My visit to Cary Academy

Today I visited Cary Academy's All About Animals summer camp. I had so much fun showing off my tricks and wiggling my butt. Jenn showed my Drill Team videos and all the kids wanted to pet me.

First, I showed off my talents with the Dog Brick puzzle.Then we talked about using positive reinforcement methods to train dogs and everyone wanted to do some clicker training with me. Jenn brought along a cardboard box to show how you can shape behaviors using the clicker and treats. Then we worked on roll over with the ClikStik. This is a handy little gadget that is a target stick with a clicker built in developed by dog trainer Terry Ryan.This was quite fun and then I got more pets from everyone. I think it was very nice to get all the attention and I get to go back next week and meet another group of campers.
