We’re still settling into the swing of things. Merlin’s been coming to school with me at the end of the day and the students love him. He’s been really patient about receiving scritches from strangers (though I make sure to have everyone “ask” with a finger waggle to demo good start-button reinforcement training techniques). He’s a good guy.
Current training focus is object retrieval. He’s more than happy to toss a block in the air until it just happens to land where I want it to. Hopefully he discovers the merits of Occam's Razor and learns to pick it up and hold it…
