Also, I love Crossbone's reverse leg weaves!! Very cool!

Still incredibly jealous of Cohen's handstand. Every now and then I come back to Zuma and Zinga's and give up again. What kills me is there's this trick dog trainer who can teach a handstand quickly to any dog, but she won't say how she does it. I WANT TO KNOW!!!

Haha! I don't think my heart could take it if I found someone capable of doing that! Totally admit that the long (long) process is my fault 'cause I had no idea what I was doing and there were so many abandoned techniques and dead ends. Cohen is a great guinea pig.

I saw your foot stall/rebounds on FB, but I still love them. Got me working on a foot rebound with Cohen, but we've not yet worked through "this must be some kind of perch" so...


Careful what you teach Cara! Having a dog who opens doors is not always the best thing in the world! :P I know of some people who refuse to teach their dogs to open the refrigerator because, well, they want to leave their food where it is. :P

I'm hoping because I'm using a pull tab to teach her to open the doors that if it becomes a problem I can simply remove the tab.

Today we worked on taking things and holding them.

She is soooooo cute & I just LOVE her nubbin!!!!

Inspired by you & Cohen we decided to learn "bow" and "moonwalk".

Um. He's got "bow" down pretty well now (except he almost always adds a spin) and "moonwalk" is getting better and better every session.

Crossbone is quite possibly the cutest thing in the whole world. I can't get over his enthusiasm!!

"Moonwalk" is a really cute cue. I use "inch it" for our backwards shuffle because ... of reasons... I guess. It seemed like the thing to do at the time!

We finally got a beg during our foot stall training today! It didn't come easy but we've been doing lots of beg practice on various unsteady surfaces and it's given her a lot of confidence.

Reviving this thread!

First off, you are my inspiration Sekah with Cohen. It's not easy to do a sit pretty in a footstall with dogs of their size and Cohen shows me we can do it!

So, I totally stole Adrianne and K9Krazee's trick, put them together and am working on the Limp Dead Dog with Traveler. Super hard since he's never been limp a second in his life and even when sleeping doesn't hang limp.

So here's where we are on our third day of working on it!



He's giving it his all to be dead. He's like "Dead, dead, not moving, dead." all while twitching. Hoping to start weaning off the amount of treats during it so he stops expecting to be treated and lifting his head.

Still not sure if I will be able to lift him up completely because it's an awkward position and I don't want to hurt him.
