The Wiener was actually *catching* the ball out of the box just now...FINALLY! We took a short hiatus...so I could wrap my head around what I needed to be working with him...and finally I got my ass in gear to work at home.
We went downstairs just now, the box is set up in John's old workshop, so I had plenty of wood for props and jumps...(very ghetto...a bath mat a box and some wood pieces) and we just had a good time...he was all "Oh...so if I catch the ball, chicken rains down from the sky. Okay, I can do that."
The ball was slowed down, but this is the first time he's attempted to catch the ball...WHILE getting all four feet on the box.
Very very pleased with both of us today.
