With Quinn I just slowly kept asking for more and more time. 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, 5, 7, 10, 15 etc.

I had to practice it quite regularly in the beginning and wait for her to build up core strength and balance. With the odd break day so she wasn't too tired. At first it was pathetic but it's so cute now that she can hold it for so long.

Beware! Once he knows how to do this, you will have to give him ALL THE THINGS because they just look so cute

Fred tends to do this as a default for stuff.... And it works!

Abrams already knows "sit" and also "stay". When I tried to brace him from behind, he just naturally let me walk behind him and place myself without moving because he is used to me walking around him/positioning myself/positioning him for things.

As for our trick progression: I haven't worked on it has much as I should have, but he has the concept down and is starting to hold the pose for longer and longer! Yesterday I had a small training session (and started him with crawl and roll over) and he was beginning to offer "pretty" by sitting up straight and waving at me. LOL So we're getting there. If I actually worked with him daily I'm sure we'd have it down pat by now, as it is it's been more like...once every two weeks.

That's what I did as well. Talon could NOT do this one to save his life at first. he just didn't have the strength, but after doing it over and over for a week he could do it and hold it a few seconds. Keep at it!

Then, profit. Or cuteness.
