Jane, a law student, said, ‘I started with teaching her to follow my finger, which I did by putting my finger against the glass, then dropping food right on top of it. ‘After she began doing that consistently, I began sticking small bits of freeze-dried blood worms to my fingertip and holding it above the surface of the water, and she quickly learned to jump out of the water to get it.
‘After that, I held a hoop with my finger in it so she would jump through the hoops and get treats off my finger. ‘In the future I might try to teach her to push a small floating ball through a ring.
‘I decided to Max tricks as I recognised after I first got her that she seemed quite inquisitive and brave. ‘She loves exploring new toys and changes in her environment, and is very smart and fearless, so I wasn’t surprised that she managed to learn this trick.’
