Fur mom to Sargent, Bó, and Pippin
Hello from the Hoosier state!
We just got our buttons less than a week ago and I have been using one to target train with Sarge while modeling Play, Outside, and Potty with the other ones. When I first started target training with him he refused to look at the button, he would just stomp around or lay down and hit it by chance. Today he actually started looking at the button before hitting it! I'm so excited! It's just crazy to me that at 13 years old he can pick up new things so quickly.
Hello from Sargent (Sarge), Bó, and Pippin (Pip)! Sarge is a 13-year-old lab/border collie mix who still amazes me with his quick wit and personality. He easily follows multistep commands and throughout the years we have made our own way of communicating. I have wanted to use speech buttons with him for a while but never had space for them. Now that we have the room I am excited to start teaching him and show that old dogs can learn new tricks. Bó and Pip are my two feisty cats that are incredibly vocal and always trying to express their needs. I hope that while teaching Sarge I can also get them interested in using the buttons.
