We spent some time signing toy and tossing Ranger's toys this afternoon. Later we took him to the park and signed this/that is food before giving him treats. I've realized that this and that are going to be a single sign. When I signed this is food to Ranger he responded by lifting his left front paw and was rewarded with a treat. He still doesn't seem confident that raising his left front paw is what he needs to do in order to get food but I think he's beginning to grasp the idea. At one point I signed this is and before I got further Ranger signed food. Once he offered the sign for toy and was gently told no. He offered the other paw in a sign for food and got a treat. It's progress albeit slow.
