Slight improvement
« on: July 15, 2012, 11:55:36 AM »

I have been stick training Brian for a couple of weeks now. He is getting better with me as I think I have built a little bit of trust. He will now let me stroke his head through the bars of the cage which he would never let me do before without biting my fingers off. However, he will only touch the stick through the bars of the cage if the door is shut. I'd like to be able to start getting him to do it with the door open to get him in and out. Do I just need to be patient or has anyone got any better ideas on building trust and confidence??

I think we all do the same so you are not alone.
If he lives to hes 60  you still got years and years to figure him out.
I thought I finally had a break through with charlie and then he got all hormonal and stroppy teenager and now im back to almost square one again.
They are not easy
