Have to say that Mum wanted to teach me this trick too, but I'm a little short in the poop for this activity. She's thinking about using a chair to boost me. In the meantime, we'll show you Gracie's new trick.
Mum started by placing Gracie's target (our yogurt container lid) taped to the wall, but Gracie loves that target so much she used her mouth to pull it off and then ran around the house like a crazy dog. Just a little too stimulating :) So then Mum used two criss-crossed pieces of tape to the wall to get Gracie interested in pawing the tape, starting low where Gracie could paw it easily. Worked great!
Then Mum moved the tape up the wall until it was over the light switch. When Gracie got the hang of pawing the tape on the light switch and turning off the light, Mum then removed the tape and voila! Gracie got it! Then she named the trick and started sending Gracie to the light switch from a further and further distance. Now Gracie can go across the room to turn of the light switch. Sure will save on our light bill, BOL!!!
