Training Levels

And now for something completely different...

I'm considering starting Toby on Sue Ailsby's Original Training Levels. I followed them for Beau and Zachary, then switched to the new levels for Henry.

I never quite got into the new levels, and Henry was a less than inspired student.

Since both of us preferred photography, and Zachary was as far with the original levels as I was going to go, the training just kind of fell by the wayside.

Enter Toby.

Toby is smart.

Toby gets bored.

A bored Toby bats the Lacrosse ball UNDER things (bed, sofa, furniture) the uses his big brain to try to figure out how to get the ball back out again.

While I admire his tenacity and inventiveness - it drives me nuts.

Sooooo... we are going to give Training Levels a try.

The Original ones. The ones I am familiar with, have a bunch of "teacher's aides" I made up for Beau and Zachary, and are readily available on-line.

To that end - here's Toby's first video on my long-silent YouTube channel (bzfischer) : Toby - Training Levels One

I've added a link to this blog (Toby's Videos) in the bar on the right under "Other Pages" with a handy chart to keep track of the videos/levels.

Beau, Zachary, and Henry's pages are also listed there.

This no way will replace Photography!

Mostly it's just to save my sanity (and possibly the furniture).
