I'm starting targeting (I think that's what it's called...I'm still new lol) with front paws today. The goal is to get Maggie to put both of her front paws on a raised platform (a book for now.) I'll be videoing it and putting it on here, so hopefully you guys can critique me! The only thing I've taught with a clicker and shaping so far is "back up," so this definitely requires a few more steps.

I have some of those lean treats (I think that's the brand) from several clients and all of my dogs love them, maybe something to look into? He looks fine to me though.
I cheated. My straight pointer finger touching the ground has been the cue for flop on your side for a long time now, initially as prep for nail work. Now nail work is done with Ryan holding Frodo, so I figured I would put the cue to better use. Started by just sticking out my thumb while the pointer finger was on the ground, and gradually moving it off the ground.

His heeling looks fantastic!

I stopped doing obedience with Kastle for about 4 months now. He was getting too loaded in heel position and leaking, consistently. Now, I've noticed with maturity he's a little less...well, nutso, so I'm hoping that when I start up with obedience again he'll be more together. That's probably totally futile but I can hold onto the hope until I start again!

We officially have a footstall! Just working on balance and duration at this point. This is by far the most awkward thing I've ever had to train... mostly because Zuma tried to stall on every other part of my body rather than my feet.

First video is a quick video of one of her stalls. Yes, my feet arn't straight but seriously this is waaay tougher than it looks!


Second video is about 3 minutes long, includes the many attempts with a nice stall at the end.

LOVE Zuma's foot stall. I also love the way she just kind of slid off your legs every time she tried to stall on your shins lol.

Me and Murphy are working on leg weaves. This is our second session.


Mu is working on perch (and not very gracefully).


Tipper is just being my darling Tipper. We're supposed to be working on removing her loathing of her harness but halfway through she decided Matt going in and out of the house was FAR more exciting. So we worked on performing under distraction instead.

I'm in love with this thread!

Zuma is sooo impressive - I don't have a dog that is anywhere near light/graceful enough to teach that too!

I cracked up watching Mu perch - just like Eden - lots of enthusiasm, little grace

Tonight I started to teach Kastle to weave backwards through my legs. Eden has nailed 4 weaves, onto 6 next. Limit is learning how to back-up-as-fast-as-he-can-and-then-fall-down-and-bark-like-a-loon...he has that pretty mastered.

Taqroy, all those look fabulous!! What I love the most is your use of reward placement, you have killer technique! Murphy is too stinkin cute, you can go ahead and send him to me anytime.

How are you training the backwards weaving with Kastle? I considered it with Backup this weekend (lol at both of us saying no then saying "hmmmm") but I think he needs a stronger "reverse" command?

I worked on this while Jason was gone last night and he says the same thing - he wants to see him because he wants to laugh LOL Limit is pretty laugh-worthy!

Kastle learns the very best if I keep him moving and don't ask him to think until his body almost already knows what it is doing. So, I'm just thrusting food in his face and having him back up through my legs and then switching food hands and legs and doing the same (I can try to video but it is HIDEOUS right now).

After one session, we can do steps - with a strong lure. He already figured out that hitting my leg and sliding down to sit on my foot is not right so now he's whipping his butt around trying to find the "hole" my legs make. He totally gets he's supposed to be backing up in some way...LOL

Not going to lie, the hardest part of this was figuring out HOW to lure him and move my body out of the way but so that he understood the cue. I wasted several minutes tripping over myself or him and tossing food in the air

ETA: the reason I'm not using his "back" command is that I want that to stay meaning to back up straight, vs this which is all wonky crooked.
