Creepy Christmas Evergreen Reindeer gives birth to a new trick!
I know this video is long....
and it is dark, but if you put it to full screen it is easier to see....
Cricket and I were at a food court and found this WEIRD EVERGREEN REINDEER, that was SCARY! Cricket started barking at it and actually pulled out of her collar-yikes! Cricket is usually not afraid of anything but seems to be going through a fear period right now.
I used some training where if Cricket walked forward I would reward her with a relief of pressure...I would run off from the scary reindeer, it all seemed to make her feel safe enough to explore the reindeer. I tried to make it a fun game of course.
A few minutes later,.....Cricket was jumping on the reindeer and a new trick was born!
If you just want to see the trick you can go to about 1:50 sec. or so into the video ;-). I thought it was cool how the reindeer is not that stable, and it jingled, and it was CREEPY (after all how many larger then life reindeer's do you see sitting in the food courts you go to?) but after a few minutes it was a cool prop for our reindeer games!
ISN'T CRICKET JUST TOO CUTE? At least I think so.
