I did start training Arnold to jump up and out past me and I would catch him (and proceeded to hurt my back) but I haven't tried with either Mal and would be interested in a proper jump into my arms trick.

I did it by getting Traveler to crawl into my lap while I was sitting, then jump in my lap and then progressed to leaning against a wall sitting and slowly kept standing up.



Then



And finally I got to this



I really liked starting with the sitting then wall because it taught me how to catch him and him how to be caught. Also, I know Traveler is a jumper by nature but before I taught this all he would do would do the pogo jump up and down on his hind legs at me.

That's fantastic - how much does he weigh? I think I want to teach that to one or both of the boys...Eden's got no boing LOL

I taught Whim and Savvy the same way Linds taught Traveler. Savvy had a natural inclination towards it but Whim did not and both are really good at it now. I always have them jump from the side, not the front and I always treat with the dog facing away from me. My oldest Belgian was a natural at this trick but she always jumped from the front and well, I was injured a few times over the years. She gave me a bloody during conformation class one time. Conformation class is not usually a place you end up bloody!

He's 39 lb but he lands like it's nothing at all.

The biggest issue we have is he thinks it's the most awesome amazing thing ever and whenever he gets excited he jumps into my arms, whether or not I'm looking, asking or ready. During agility class everytime I would look at him and say "Good boy" he would be like "REALLY?? DO YOU WANT TO SEE HOW GOOD??" and land in my arms. I get home from work and I typically end up with him jumping into my arms, pushing off, landing and doing it again.

I kinda love it.

Yeah... Arnold is 60-65 lbs and the period of me catching him in the air was a few months and then nothing. No more, I'm getting older (**** near in a nursing home) and my back should probably be preserved. LOL

Thanks for the tips, I may try this with the mals, but either way I'll pass it along to the client with boing-y a terrier mix.

During the period that I was teaching it and proofing it I had a sore back more days than not. Luckily, I got stronger and we both got better at executing it. But much bigger than him and it would have been painful! Especially since you said you were catching him more than he was landing on you. Ow.

Bummer, so my catching 62 lb Kastle is probably not happening Even Limit will probably be 45 lbs...although I could teach him now - he's "offering" it as it is. He boings off the furniture and launches himself at me even if I'm not facing him!

I kinda love it too

Elsie's finally getting 'swing' (finish to the left). I don't know why we made that one so hard on ourselves.

I've also started having her heel automatically if I start on the left food and stay if I start on the right, which has reduced her lag considerably when I say, "Let's go!" and march off.
