#104: A Fish in the Hand is Worth...

Blondie is back! It's been a while since our last post, so here is a new behavior to get your lumpy fix. I thought it would be cool to train her to sit comfortably in my hand. You can see how I kept my hand steady and let her come to me. After a few nibbles on yummy shrimp, I lightly move my fingers up and touch her belly. You can see at one point I run out of food and as I reach over to get more, she sits on my finger! After a few trials of light tapping and her hovering over my fingers, I start to lift my hand. This behavior took a few weeks to complete, but here is a minute version of what we did. Be sure to check back in with Blondie and me; next behavior...blowing bubbles!

  1. I think this is your coolest behavior yet! I can't believe she lets you lift her out of the water. What a great bond you have with her. Can't wait to see more.
