Video: Flower’s new trick

Flower the rat goes through the tunnel

Flower is one of my young rats. I’ve only done a bit of clicker training with her, but she’s a smart girl and a quick learner! This is her latest trick — she had previously learned how to go through a tunnel, so we decided to make it a bit harder. Now, the tunnel starts out on its side and Flower has to flip up the tunnel before going through it.

I’m not sure what to call this trick. If anyone has suggestions for a cute or clever name for this trick, please let me know.

    Great work! She looks as if she’s really enjoying herself. I’d call the trick an “Inside out” !

    • Hi Cheryl,

      Thanks for the name suggestion! Glad you liked the trick. 🙂

      cheers,

    Hi Mary, your rat, Flower, reminds me of my friend’s horse, Smoky — totally devoted to earning that next treat! What a great work ethic! Certainly looks like a smart cookie. Such fun to wath.

    • Hi Hertha,

      Glad you enjoyed the video!

      Yes, Flower is quite a smartie. 🙂

      cheers,

      Mary

  • Flower is such a smart girl since she was great in doing this trick. It’s a bit harder since she has to flip up the tunnel. So I would like to call this a “Flip Up tunnel” trick. How about that? Does it sound cool?

    Right now I’m training my boy a new trick that would definitely be easy for him.
