Lilu Learns Things

Meg is a conservation research scientist, obsessed with her dog and dog science. I also love hiking, beach shenanigans and ultimate frisbee. Lilu is an Aussie Shepherd who loves other people, games, tricks, agility and hanging with her peeps.

Love you as an expression of gratitude?

YES and Poisoning a marker?

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•
I am bit worried about introducing YES on the board as i use it as a marker. I could probably record "yeah" or something instead, but i am wondering what other's experiences may have been?Β

All done to say it's gone/not here?

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•
yesterday lilu used all done in an interesting context. the ball was stuck, and she pressed ALL DONE BALL, but looked at it still. she has a help button which we modelled when her toy was stuck, and she used both in context and they aren't close on the board, so this was interesting, and i wondered whether she might be using it to tell me it was "gone" or "stuck".Β Β

WHEN TO INTRODUCE THE QUESTION MARK?

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•

I have started asking lilu questions and modelling a question mark sound ... i am tempted to just add the question mark now with where are want, because they go with questions ... what have others done? What is the reasoning aroud leaving it till what is introduced?Β  has anyone else done it earlier?Β

Button Madness!

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•
Today, Lilu went mad and pressed her buttons more in an hour than she had in total previoulsy. It seemed to be partly requests, possibly some narration, some experimentation, and i don't know what. we have a help button which she pressed with no obvious need for help expect for that she seemed to be suuuuuper itchy.Β Β 

Transitioning from buttons to the board... but i have multiple verbs...?

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•
So we have four buttons. (go) outside, play, help and scritches...
outside can. go on where, but should i put the others each on their own verb hexes? or all just next to each other or??? i am not really sure what to do...Β 

Issues with positioning

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ•
We just started a week and a half ago, but i have a major issue with outside. If the button is at the back door its behind a gate and another door. So i can put it next to the back door but she rarely has access to it, or inside the second door and she has access perhaps half the time we are all home, or inside the gate and she has access 100% of the time and its not really linked to the door.... that being said, she's already two and kind of waits at whichever of these thresholds is the closest to the door that she can access, so i am kind of wondering if the button should move around too, or be at the gate consistently? Would be super grateful for any feedback.Β
