Default Trick of the Week: Hug!

Ok! So I have been having trouble coming up with something to match Perch and all the enthusiasm people showed with it but I figure we'll come back to that in a few weeks maybe and do a brush up. And feel free to keep posting in that thread! That's a never ending trick!

So, this week (And yeah, I get that it's more like month....oh well, week sounds better) is Hug! Now, I've never taught this trick so I went to Sekah because Cohen knows all tricks and she was awesome enough to make a video of it to give everyone a visual.



So, as you can see it's a nice trick to start out with a pole/broom/mop/PVC etc. but it can evolve into holding on t a toy or even into picking something up to hold onto.

I've never attempted this trick before so I'm going to be navagating it with you all and hopefully Sekah and anyone else that has done it can be our guru's!

I started this trick with Zinga when she was a puppy, just never got around to finishing it.

Me too, but with Webby! But this is one Mira should be able to do too. Kim can't do a sit-pretty without support it's just motivation to keep working on that with her

Aww, that's so cute! Looks difficult. I don't even know where to begin.

Oh man, that's adorable. Squash is pretty paws-y so hopefully we can get this done.

The first step is getting some interaction with a pole. This trick is much easier for dogs who are naturally "handsy" (which Cohen is not).

It's one of Trkman's puppy class projects, so you can find quite a few "in progress" videos on youtube.

Ooh this should be fun! Feist almost has enough core strength to sit pretty, so having this as a goal will help us actually get that done.

This trick screams Fred.

But we are still working on perch!

Oooh, this looks like fun! And Boone always defaults to using his paws, so hopefully that will help.
