Thanks though! It's SOO sloppy right now, I mainly took that so I could critique myself. I'm going to be revamping my whole heel soon, I am so not happy with it. I moved too fast.

But anyways, he got the side step really fast. I think it helped a ton that he had a solid pivot oh him first so when I stepped away a little bit he would think we were starting to do a pivot but then run into me. So soon he was swinging his front end with me when I would step to the side and soon after that he was getting a true side step with paws crossed both front and back.

Honestly, he figured it would pretty fast and I really think that having the pivot helped a ton

Out of curiosity, how big is she?
She's tiny - she hovers around 37 pounds, and is just shy of 21". She is a pretty bouncy dog!

And his Greyhound did somersaults...possibly the weirdest and most impressive dog trick ever. I can't say he used entirely positive training but he did say that he used leftover pancakes to train the dogs every day. Considering it was the 50s, I'd say he was way ahead of his time.

I'm trying to teach Harleigh to flip the treat off her nose and actually CATCH it. She's so good at it... as you can see, LOL.

Harleigh's catching trick is fun! Ziggy does that trick too

I may be too easily amused but: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6DRSfLJ7e4

Taking a break from working on the handstand (ART LOOKS AMAZING) because we weren't getting anywhere so I think it's a good idea to wait a little bit. Instead I'm completely reworking his heel because where it is now is too sloppy for me.

Decided to try Silvia Trkmans method and am starting with a pivot on an object without me guiding. Was surprisingly hard to get here and he's only going one direction right now because if I kept clicking for movement in either/or direction he would have had a really funky dance in front of me going on but never actually get to the point of facing away from me.

Ok so you've officially reached where I stopped with Zuma before. Do you think that dogs with Zuma and Traveler's body shape can physically do a handstand for more than a second? I really think their long front legs work against them.

BTW, love his pivot.

I really really don't know, I would like to say yes because I really really want to get it. But it's such an awkward body position for them! He has no issue up against a wall or even pushing off of it a bit, much like Zuma (though I think Zuma is better away from the wall then him by far, he just offers one leg up and then a tiny hop with the other)

Right now, I'm going to go with the idea that it's going to take much more muscle memory and core muscle strength to get there. That's why I'm just going to work on back leg raising and going up a wall in different places for now.
