Lovely! Just a thought - one of the first things I noticed was her collar dangling and jingling. I would take the collar off whenever you're training tricks, especially ones that require a bit of jumping around.

Note the PJs and bottle of wine in the background. The chair was more for laziness/comfort than any sort of tactical reason.

Looks awesome!! Nice and tight, she's being very deliberate about where she's placing her feet.

I'm normally doing 3-4 tricks at any one time. Sometimes more, sometimes less but I have a short attention span so I do best having more than one going on at a time.

So, do it!

Sekah, Cohen looks fantastic! Super tight and really consistent. Though, I kept waiting for her to hit you and the chair to spin in a circle

Krissy, she looks like she's getting it! She seemed to get more and more comfortable as the video went on, really impressed!

Here's Didgie today, I'm standing up but bracing myself on the cabinet behind me till I'm more steady. I want to get her doing it more consistently and closer up but as of right now she's doing pretty awesome! She hits it right about 3 out of 5 times but, she needs some distance from me that I want to work on eliminating

Bah! Didgie and Cohen are ridiculous! So cool! I will be happy if we can get a hip rebound. I'm not super confident that it will happen but we're working on it and we shall see. She's doing well tonight so maybe tomorrow I'll get some more video if she's made any progress. We are seriously going to be working tiny baby steps to get her jumping on me and not the ottoman. There's just really not a lot of space. Lol. I'm little, she's big. It shall be an interesting journey! Lol

Nope. Nope nope nope. I don't have the indoor space for this and I'm not teaching them to do it against the fence, so... we'll sit this one out and marvel at everyone else.

Amber, I love how enthusiastic she is! She's super cute and I love seeing a video of her.

I might back up a step and be sitting or in more of a sitting position against the wall. She's not getting that turn in that she needs, she hits you and then turns away from you rather than in a circle which is what you want. Instead of throwing the treat away from you bring her back in by rewarding from your right hand.

So you want it to look like her jumping up from your right, turning her body back towards your right as she hits you to complete the turn.

Watch my video I posted in the start of the thread when I'm leaning against my dresser which is about where you are right now.

Ya I definitely see what you are saying. I'll give that a shot. We are going to work more on it tomorrow. And thank you... she definitely is an enthusiastic dog and a blast to train. I wish I was a better trainer because this dog has insane potential.

You totally have enough room! At least to teach Maisy to jump off of you!

But, if you insist on not doing it we're totally coming back to it in the summer when you won't have too litter of room inside as an excuse.
