Alke is alerting me when Jesse calls out my name. When she comes to me I'm signing "what" as a command for her to show me what she wants to alert me to.
We've been working with @positive_k9_training on training Alke to alert me when someone knocks on our front door.
Yesterday we thought we'd try a similar training sequence to get Alke to alert me when someone calls out my name. She got the hang of it practically straight away! This video is from our first session working on this. Obviously we have a lot more work to do but we're pretty chuffed she got the idea so quickly 😍
