I started with targeting a small plastic cone and also introduced standing on a mat. Cricket picked up targeting after a few clicks. Almost like, "Hey! I remember this!" The mat took her a moment but it wasn't long before she was doing something with it.
I did four short sessions on Friday and four sessions yesterday. By the time we were done last night, she had just about figured out the idea was to put both feet on the mat. In clicking her for duration, I started to select for a "pretty girl pose" - eyes forward, chin slightly tucked. I can't get her ears forward because she ends up standing sideways to me and one ear is always on me! Eventually we'll get it.
This is the beginning of a major change. I need to process some more before I post.
