Trick of the week: Back up!
Not the Lemur...
This week's trick is back up! Fantastic for rear end awareness and for getting your dog into a specific spot. This can be done in heel position with you backing up with your dog or it can be an independent back up. You can shape, lure or target train this behavior.
If you are like me and already have back ups on your dogs, add distance, add speed, try it in a standing position, try it in heel position, try to have them back up through your legs, or back up towards you!
Ready.... Set.... Go!!!
