Hopefully I'll find time to get a video of this week's (and last week's) tricks. Boo already knew all from week one, so that should be easy to get on video. She knows the basics of backup and crawl so it's just "kennel" that I need to work on before filming. I'm using a dog bed as her target because we don't crate Boo.

Boo's video is up. Her 'backup' needs some serious "distance" work (), but I had fun teaching her how to go to her bed.

Question

For the "place" trick, is that just the dog being able to find the heel position on command? Is it allowed for the dog to do the traditional front then swing left into a heel, or to go around the back of the legs to a heel position?
I know the way that I've been *wanting* to teach it, but I'm not sure if I have time in just this week with the other tricks.

We started "spin" today, but I'm scared to work on it for more than a minute because I'm scared he will get dizzy
I'm also being a bad trainer and luring it instead of shaping , though I will be shaping the "place" if I do it the way I want to.

This is how my book describes teaching it:

Place = your dog circling behind you to end sitting at your left side
1. stand facing your dog with his leash in your right hand
2. say "place" (or whatever command) and take a step back with your right foot, pulling your dog toward your right side and behind you. Keep your left foot planted
3. transfer the leash to your left hand while returning your right foot next to your left and pulling your dog into position at left side
3. pull up on leash and have dog sit.

For the trick, as long as dog ends up on left side who cares how he gets there. LOL. If someone could chime in that does rally or obedience, which is the better way? A spin backwards into heel or going around back of you?

I have seen a LOT of people recently teaching the dog by putting a circular container in the front position, then teaching the dog to put their paws on that and pivot into a left. This seems to be the way to go now a days, though I believe either is acceptable in traditional obedience, not sure about rally.

Like so...
YouTube - Lance and Vito's pivoting skills

Here's a vid of the end result, wheras the first is more the steps of training it:
YouTube - Pivot?

I think this might be required in rally??

The "place" I got was from the book as its one of the tricks for the Novice Trick Title. I've been doing some box work with my crew, and want to eventually have them do like the video you posted.

We have only ever done rally-O, never any formal OB, and there has been one time I came across a sign that called specifically to have the dog "go around behind and place on the left" rather than generic "just get your dog in heel." So they are IMO and IME separate commands (for Auggie the first is called "place" and the second "line it up.")

Oh yeah, and PW, I am afraid to teach Auggie spin too, LOL... he'll just spin for hours... dear God! I can't really figure out how to teach that one except to do some luring too. "Back up" was pretty easy to free shape, but "spin" is not something he really does naturally...
