Sunday July 23rd 2006 - home practice

(Backfilled in October 2009 due to impending closure of Geocities)

I've been having difficulty getting Walter to bow on command without using a hand to lure. So I took him to a park and showed him a ball, and he had to bow, or at least start to bow, before I'd throw it. This worked like a charm. Now he does a nice, if brief, bow when I have the ball out. The next hurdle will be getting him to maintain the bow position since after a couple of seconds he turns it into a down. I'll also have to work on getting him to bow without being lured on the contacts.
