Training Ollie to go into his travel cage

Back in April I started desensitizing Ollie to the cage:



In the last few weeks I have been training in earnest as he may need to go to the vet. I shaped the procedure using tiny steps or approximations towards the final behaviour of stepping down onto the travel cage perch. Success! I'm now beginning to shape duration - the amount of time he is in there before offering the perch so that he can come out again. He gets a large piece of cashew nut because it takes time to eat. An easy way to start off training duration. This is a video from a couple of days ago:


Because the cage is now paired with a fabulous experience (his favourite cashew nuts), Ollie is becoming increasingly eager to get inside!

What a lovely chap be is, like all Olivers. How is his health?
Yep all Olivers are good eggs. :pancarta:

Not sure about his health. He's just finished his course of antibiotics. Going to let him settle down a bit. Still doesn't seem 100% to me.
