Winry's Got More Than Looks!

She's got smarts! This video is literally the first time I ever tried any form of targeting with her. There are a few points that detail minor confusion (or boredom, if you can tell which), but I'm impressed with how fast she picked up on it!

I've been practicing a while with Ferguson, and while he's mostly got it, he doesn't seem to understand that me asking him to "touch" does not require him to sit or lay down on his side (his go-to tricks for appeasing me). So, this makes it a little harder.

In any case, Winry has proven herself quite capable! I look forward to continuing to work with her on fun stuff in the future ^_^.

I think some hounds have a stronger drive to please with stuff like that than others. All five of the Greyhounds we've adopted have had various levels of success. It always fascinates me to see how different hounds work. Winry reminds me a lot of our Blueberry!

That's very good. I struggle with the difference between sit and down! Deccy x
