LeeLoo, Get It and Drop It

What is the ultimate goal? Marlene and I want LeeLoo to drop the object that is in her mouth into a basket. To get started, we have to make sure that LeeLoo understands the command “get it.” First, LeeLoo is rewarded for just touching the object with her nose. Then, she progresses. She is given the command “get it” and rewarded for holding the object in her mouth. Next, LeeLoo has to hold the object in her mouth for longer and longer periods of time. She has to wait for the command “drop it” before her behavior is clicked and rewarded. Getting her to hold the object until she receives the command “drop it” takes patience and a bit of timing. We are still working on it.
