Clicker Training Progress Video

Here is a video of our clicker training progress. It was all spur of the moment (because of bad weather) and not at all planned, not to mention I had a borderline migraine at the time and the flies were driving Chrome crazy, so it's not our best by any means, but it'll give you an idea what we're working on.

I know someone will notice and mention that Chrome looks thin. I've already increased his feed and hay. I noticed how thin he'd gotten when he finally shed out his winter coat over his ribs and I started increasing it then. I've almost got him back to where I want him, but I have to be carefully to increase his feed slowly over time so I don't aggravate his joints again or cause other problems.

Anyway, if anyone has any tips, suggestions or anything feel free to comment. We'd love to hear from you.


  1. Great consistent treat delivery! You guys are progressing so well. That's pretty much how I work in a session, spending a bit of time on various exercises so no one gets bored. I found it really useful to introduce a marker to tell Star we've finished that exercise and are moving on, so now I use "good job" to let her know :)

  2. Awesome job! I love the chickens all running up to get their share too!
