Clarke refuses to get into his SUV, and that is a problem because he goes to daycare several times a week. Lifting a 70 pound Labrador Retriever is no longer an option. Tonight we clicked and treated him for looking at the car. We put treats in the back then clicked and treated when he put is front feet in the car, but he just wouldn't jump in. Then we made him an offer he couldn't refuse: spray liver in a Kong! By the end of our session Clarke was jumping in unassisted. It's all about the motivation!
