Good lesson Ryan, and very nice results with Molly. I think giving the animal the choice to participate or not goes a long way in building the relationship. It is also important information to the trainer on the animals’ comfort level and attitude towards training. I like to give animals that choice as much as possible. For animals we work in a protected contact system that usually means an open door to another space. If we are giving an anesthesia injection we can’t leave doors open, but by that time we have built the relationship and practiced sessions with the door closed.

I love that you used “hand feeding” as a lesson itself. I work a lot with rabbits, guinea pigs, and other “pocket pets,” and many people don’t realize that eating out of a hand is a behavior that needs to be taught. This was a fabulous lesson-thank you for filming and sharing!
