Default Trick of the week: Frog!

This week's trick of the week is Frog! This is a great stretching exercise and a great warm up before physical activity. And it's adorable.

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

Does anyone have tips for trying to free shape this one? I'm trying so hard to refrain from luring right now and I think this would be fun to train.

Use a pillow or a cushion under them and then get progressively smaller and smaller until they are doing it on just a blanket and then nothing at all. I have a video:

Frog is at 2:22.

Zane can't bend that way, so we'll be sitting out of this one. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's though.

You can teach it on the cushions and then never go lower.

My goal with this trick is to get Zinga's on verbal cue (it's sometimes there, sometimes not). Zuma has her own version of this called "Splat", it's a frog plus a head down and it's adorable. My goal is to increase the distance she can do this from me, right now I have to be within 2-3 feet from her.

Here's Zuma's Splat for now.

Very cute!!!


Well, I hit today's training session with this in mind. Did some nice stuff with Zuma, I was able to kneel instead of sit on the ground to get Splat. Zinga on the other hand was all over the place as usual so we scratched the original plan and just did impulse control stuff and balance ball stuff (she can't spaz out on the balance ball and has to concentrate on staying still rather than vibrating). So no frog for her tonight.
