After having a roadblock due to moving the outside button away from the door and adding play. We are back on using the buttons, but she is not pressing unless I ask or show her. BTW, she presses her button she so much force is so funny, like really aggressive.Β 

I'm not adding anymore more button until she understands that she does not have to wait for me to ask to press.Β 
Β What can I do to show to model away from the button?

I'm very much proud of her and how far she has come, is all about time and making sure they are comfortable.

Road Block :(

So we had our first solo press but after that, it hasn't repeated.Β  when we do target training she does good with a sticky note on the button, the problem is when i take the sticky note away from the bottom she wont press it. I also move the button from the door to where I'm going to put them permanently, I live in an RV so is not that far away from the main door. should I put the button back next to the door? she does grasp fully the concept and what does it mean.

Buttons on Vacation??

Bailey ask for her first request all on her own last night and yes I cried, is like hearing that first mama call from a child. She has press the button before but after I
asked, is amazing to see her trying to communicate. The best part was that she actually needed to go outside to potty, so I can see that she asked because she needed to go out.Β

On Friday night after the last training section of the day and after I have already taken bailey out, I went outside again without her to throw away garbage but I stayed out longer than I expected so after 5 min of being outside, Bailey is standing next to me, Husband told me that she was sitting looking at the door, he asked her if she wanted to go outside and she came running stand up on him look down to the button and press with both paws.Β

I'm wondering if it was like an accident or she understands what the button is there for. She has not pressed the button again on her own we are still working on targeting training since she is still awkward with her paws LOL (like she does not know what to do with her long legs).Β

Bailey is a 2yr old Poodle with lots of energy. We started with our buttons 4 days ago "OUTSIDE" she alredy pick up on the word and she knows where the button is, she walk over to, it sniff it but no luck yet on touching it. When is the best time to have targeting training seccions with her since she has lots of energy should i do after a walk or play time or use that energy for training?Β 

What you best advice in Targeting training?
