I told Mu that everyone on Chaz was laughing at her and she glared at me.

Cohen's handstand has apparently become Cohen's headstand.



I was always suspicious that her lack of a tail would make this trick extremely difficult for her. I'm not sure if it's THAT that's resulted in her nose squish technique or not. It's pretty ugly, but pretty funny too.

Sorry for the extremely half-assed video. I slapped it together on my phone in a rush.

We're working on building duration a bit. Progress has been SO DAMNED SLOW with this trick. I'm wondering if I faded the wall too quickly, as we've been at this same "bump up quickly into position" phase for months now.

Ok, not gonna lie, really really jealous you've gotten that far. Cohen is doing so good and I love her nose to the ground. Super impressed.

I've just stopped doing anything with it with Traveler because it becomes all he'll offer, back leg lifts and backing up things. I'm afraid to start again. But really, I'm so tickled you guys have gotten this far! It's such a hard trick.

Hahaha! These dogs are all so cute and hilarious! I wonder if the nose touch helps her balance or if she just thinks it's part of the trick. Either way it's super cute.

Thanks guys! It's the trick I'm always asked to show people, so I'd like to get it super polished, but I think at this rate it'll take me about 5 more years.

If you'll notice in her first handstand in the video she's shaking a bit. It's because she was super excited and wagging her tail nubbin so hard it was making her vibrate. :3

I think the nose touch started as balance. When I send her to a wall to do a handstand she'll stand with her forelegs straight.

I love her (I think it's her) grumble growl while she's up. LOL

Super jealous of Cohen's handstand too!! It's looking so good.

Here's what I'm working on with Zuma. A flip without a disc catch. Right now I'm weaning the disc away so while she still gets it as a reward, it's not longer in my cuing hand. I'd like to get it just on a verbal as well, and have to get rid of the spin first.

Cohen's hand/head stand is AMAZING! I want to do it!

Also, Zuma is the cutest thing EVER. She's put together so well, I forget how small she is.

Gah! I just adore Zuma!

Here's some random stuff with Boone:

I completely slacked off with his Heel, so I just played around with it a little tonight to start getting him back in the game of finding the right position.
And I was trying to teach him Frog Legs, but we're kind of stuck with the weird side hop thing. Not sure yet if I'm going to stick with that and make it its own thing or try to shape it into Frog Legs.
