Zinga's head flip is just hysterical. I love that she threw that one day and just kept at it. So useful.

She's so fun to watch work, such a funny girl! I love her.

I might have to share a small portion of my attempt to shape it from a head turn. It was a joke and shamed me greatly. But I will say I kinda like it from a pivot! It works more hind end awareness and it's turning into almost a pure classic spin with Traveler just kinda leading with his butt

I work it a bit more off camera, just adding the cue in, the second video is putting other cues with the spin cue to help her differentiate her verbals.

Shaping the spin:


Testing the cue:
so im sending maddie to you for training right? lol

Our first try at spin! I need to film myself training more often, it makes me realize how many missed opportunities I had where I could have clicked/treated So while Foxy will continue to work on spin I will work on upping my rate of reinforcement. And I'll use my actual camera to film training sessions instead of my phone balanced in a candle so hopefully Foxy will remain in frame for the majority of the video

So I think I'm going to steal whoever said Megan should teach the cue as herself spinning, and do that! Because it'll be awesome, and I need practice at changing cues, because EVERYTHING has a hand cue and NOTHING has a verbal (well, almost nothing) in this house!

Wow, those all look really cool! I'm really impressed with the amount of patience everyone has training! lol

Art knows spin (not ready for Talon to learn these yet), but I never taught him to spin in the opposite direction. So I guess we will try that

So I was thinking, because some of us don't always get the whole trick completed in one week, I think every 4 or 6 weeks we should do little "progress reports" or something, where we video all of the tricks we've worked on since the beginning to show how far they have come since that week was over. Maybe?

I think I'm going to try shaping this one... I tried shaping it with Auggie ages ago and it went horribly, and shaping with Auggie these days tends to be Auggie just standing in front of me barking (sigh.) We shall see what the puppies make of this one.

That's a really great idea!

Love it! Foxy is just adorable. She is so, so happy! I agree about filming - because I'm so in the moment, I have difficulty with timing, placement and all that important stuff. Seeing myself at least makes me a bit more aware.

I love the idea of a spin from a pivot! Traveler is looking great.

Juno has picked that up so fast!

Mia had me in stitches. lmao

Zinga is looking awesome. That video was really helpful because that's how I started to train it. Just not with such quick progress because I've only ever shaped with objects. I was also placing my reinforcement in the general direction of where I wanted the spin. This may take a while, I've got a couple of vids already, but I figure I'll wait a couple more days and maybe edit it into one to see the progression.

I'd love to have an update thread because I'm keen to continue working on past tricks as well.
