Stรฉphanie and Drake

Teacher
๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿฅ‰ ๐Ÿฅˆ
Drake is a mutt (rottie, Staffie, bulldog, mastiff, doberman mix) who rescued himself 7 years ago as a severely emaciated 6 month pup (who had over 200 ticks on him) by hopping in our truck trying to steal food. Now he's our happy little fur baby ๐Ÿฅฐ

First time narrating what is happening outside

๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿฅ‰ ๐Ÿฅˆ
So we've been trying to teaching Drake "stranger" every time he starts barking at people walking or driving by the house. He still hasn't used that button independently yet but suddenly today he started barking at people passing by and then went and hit "walk". I looked out the window and sure enough, some people were walking their dog past the house! It was his first time narrating what was happening and found it interesting that he was able to identify what "walk" looked like for others and not just necessarily associating walk with me taking him for a walk. I check my camera to see if I got video footage of it but unfortunately my housecleaner came today and I didn't notice that she moved the camera for hit buttons so all I got was my shelf and sound (because the camera is pointed downwards at the buttons)

Drake picked up yes and no instantly!

So last week, I introduced No to Drake and he instantly picked it up. I thought it was so funny because on Wednesday, I was watching my friend's new puppy and Drake was all played out and being grumpy with her. I told him to stop being a dink and then he got up and went towards his buttons- which were also near the puppy's food that drake is allergic to- I initially thought he was going to try to steal her food and was about to scold him but he actually went straight to the buttons, hit "No" and looked at the puppy. ๐Ÿคฃ Then this morning if figured I might as well introduce yes since I introduced no and he is always so damn lazy in the morning. I showed him yes and no and then asked him if he needed to go pee (which I knew he did because we just woke up) and before I could model anything else, he went straight to yes, hit it, and walked to the door. Man! I guess he knew those terms well because we use them so much with him. It took pretty much no modeling, just showing him where the buttons were. Here's a link to the video where he told the puppy no:
