Snake Training: Vedra 2

Posted by loriana12 on September 20, 2018 at 6:30 PM

I’ve been target training Vedra and I’m so proud of her tonight. She followed the target all the way from her enclosure to her feeding tub without me putting hands on her or using any prompts at all! This is a big step in the process. It’s the first time she’s moved from one location to another following the target. Until now I’ve gotten her to follow the target with her eyes and head and perch above it in her enclosure; tonight I used it to get her to move on her own from one location to another, very exciting!

The steps I used so far:

Feed her on the target.

Place the target in front of her and place the food on it once she looks at it.

Place the target in front of her and once she looks at it, remove the target and give food. 

Move the targer around a small space, when she follows it with her head, remove the target and give food.

Scent the target with food and get her to follow the target from her enclosure to her feeding bin, once inside and stationary, remove target and give food. 

Place the unscented target in front of her, have her follow it from her enclosure to her feeding bin, once stationary, remove target and give food. 

Next  . . .

Time will tell.
