I have tried a new method and seems to be working. I think that my previous method was useful and a good starting point, but I think this was a good next step. The new method involves me clicking and then dropping the food. When Penelope runs over to eat the food I click again right before she eats it. I have a few videos to show how Penelope’s progress is coming. In the first video you can see how I’m starting the shaping process. I let Penelope get a little bit further away from the food each time before I click the clicker.
In this second video you can see how Penelope is on the other side of the aquarium and when she hears the clicker she runs back to get the food. Exactly like she is suppose to!
