In order to walk across the teeter totter in agility class, Ricky has to learn to not be afraid of the tip board. There's a tennis ball in the center of the underside, which makes it unstable. He has been very afraid of the board. In desperation today, I put his favorite goodie under a glass bowl. He was able to reach with his paw and slide the bowl off so he could get the goodie. My next attempt to get him to place a foot on the board was to place sticky tape on the bowl rim so he couldn't move it!
