They do pick things up quicker when they're young like human babies so the sooner the better

I think it's said that your grey at that age has the intelligence of a two year old human so the sooner you start the better  :thumbsup:

Step up would be first, as its a simple procedure, then build upon his training, see Pats Training threads.

Step up is always a good one to start with, I rarely say step up, just plonk my finger in front of them and they pop on, does every one else use the command?
I wish they could be trained like a dog......sit, stay, in your basket (cage) doesn't work that way though, they are far to stubborn  :biggrin:

I offer the back of my hand with fingers and thumb tucked in and say step up whilst pushing my hand up under their chests. If they are being stubborn I sometimes hold a bit of walnut in the other hand above their heads so they are distracted. They don't seem to think of two things at once  :thumbsup:

According to Flint I say 'up', cos thats what he says all the time now  :rofl:

But basically he knows when the arm wrapped in the big blue towel comes towards him he is meant to step up  :rofl:

I just say "Come on then" to Charlie and he steps up.....or sometimes I don't say anything.  Penny is left well alone  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  Step up to her translates to "Strip skin"
