Dragging Tiles

πŸ₯‰ πŸ•
My learner goes through phases of mildly curious about her first button and then completely uninterested. We have been working on target practice with a separate button that is not programmed over the last couple weeks and that seems to have regained her interest. She has recently started a new method of "hitting" the button by putting her paw on the button and dragging the tile towards her.

Does anyone have any experience with this lazy method of hitting and how to clean up the hits? I don't want to stop praising her for hitting this way since it has taken so much effort for her to stop being scared of touching the button.Β 

Additionally, does anyone secure their tiles to the floor in some way? I currently have some duct tape on the underside of the tile which has helped the sliding, but it doesn't feel like a long term solution.Β
