#15: Flipper Stand

Hi, my name is Cheryl. I am training Cordova, one of our Fur Seals, to do a front flipper stand. Cordova already knows some of the basic behaviors needed to do a flipper stand. She knows how to touch her nose or her front flippers to a bead at the end of a pole called a target. I am training her to touch her hind end to the target as well. In this video, she moved towards the target. The next step will be for her to reach towards the target, lifting her hind end off the ground. Check future blogs for our progress.
