Introducing Objects

Last night I wanted to train something new with Tibby, so I put different objects down on the floor and Tibby interacted with them.  Last night I used a green flower pot, a glass chicken and a big wooden chicken. 
  In Feb. I'm taking Tibby to get her pictures taken and I would like her to pose with different props.  My goal was to get Tibby to put both paws up on the green flower pot and then to have her bow.  In 3 sessions she got it.  I was surprised at how quickly Tibby can guess what I want. 
 Clicker training is amazing!
I made a video today of Tibby with the flower pot and also how she acts when I introduce a new object: a tea pot.  The tea pot was a challenge for her, because it made noise when she touched it.  I am trying to get her used to the idea of making noise.
