Default Trick of the Week: Spin!

I am so impressed with the participation in the first week, and I loved watching all the videos! Week 2 is under way, this week's trick is spin. You can teach one direction or both directions. One spin or multiple spins. This is a fantastic way to warm up or stretch dogs before physical exercise.

Ready..... Set..... Go!

Frodo can already do this one, now I need to get creative and jazz it up!

ETA: I just realized that if everyone participates and is successful each week, our dogs will know 52 new tricks if we can keep this up for a year. How cool would that be?!!

It always amazes me how much Juno sucks at this trick LOL. Maybe we will finally conquer it.

This is one of Bailey's favorites! She currently spins both ways, I wonder how I can modify it...?

Maybe I can get her spinning on a smaller surface?

I've been thinking about either a smaller surface or having him stand on his back legs and spin around. I thought about doing around legs or something, but if we do leg weaves at all then that would be my modifier since he already leg weaves.

Decisions decisions!

She's deaf so each is on a signal now.

Zuma knows both directions as well. I'm working on speed and adding distance to our cue. If she nails that, I'm going for a standing spin in both directions.

You should totally teach her to spin while you spin. And then it will look like you are dancing. And it will be fabulous.

Kiba knows spin and turn (different direction). For those that already know it... I challenge you to backwards spin!!
