Everyday I try to come up with something new to do with Takoda. Today I decided to expose him to a pinwheel of hoops with props to help him be successful without me needing to babysit.
Over the course of one day, I gradually moved the Expens away from the left and right hoops but left them close to the OUT hoop.
(above) This video is of a couple of reps with Expens helping Takoda seek out all three hoops. I used toys for some reps and mark buckets and food for other reps.

By the last set of reps, there was just a sliver of an Expen near the OUT hoop. I was very pleased with how well he drove through the hoops. I also varied my position. In this video I tested rear crosses, which he read very well.
The forecast is for RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, so it will be a while before Takoda sees any more hoops or pinwheels. It will be interesting to see how much sunk in today but I am guessing he will remember what he experienced today because it looked like he was having fun and feeling really good about his success.
