I bet "Back into me" is really helpful with that trick. I was thinking about altering Back Up for this trick and starting that way.

But Frodo doesn't know that one! lol

I was thinking of setting him up in a heel type position and rewarding for his back end swinging in at all? But if we are taking this one on this week then I want the path of least resistance!

I lured it. I taught Kastle to back up first, by thrusting food into his face and rewarding when he backed away. Then I taught him to do it between my legs. Then I added a spin to the backing up. We were stuck at 2 steps for a LONG time. Then I removed the lure and asked him to just figure it out. That took 3-4 sessions and now he can do it ok with no lure.

I shaped it, surprise surprise!

Rewarded for heel position and luckily (?) Traveler has a terrible formal heel so when he got bored enough he started to try and pivot, but since I wasn't moving his butt was aimed around me. I kept my legs spread apart so there was more room for success and just built on that.

But, pretty much I can teach him anything if it involves swinging his butt around.

I have a really adorable second idea, but IDK if Frodo is high energy enough, lmao.

I shaped it. But was tricky about it:

I started with pedestal work (trkman's method of teaching heel) to teach my dog to swing her butt around. Once they were swinging reliably into me and "glued" to my leg when I moved, I removed the pedestal. Then I would just kind of fake them out, make them think we are doing a pivot but in reality step my leg out and they just magically slide backwards. From there it's all about reward placement.

Fleetwood is fluent in regular leg weaves, but I've never tried backwards because I feel like he's too tall. He has to duck down considerably to do a regular leg weave. He's really tall and I'm really short!

Has anybody taught this with a really tall dog?
