As per this thread:

I am working on teaching Mia to go to her bed and stay there. Eventually that will be her place to go when I bring Summer out to work with her. Session 1(skipping most of it):

I'm going to keep filming because I realize I'm really unclear sometimes. I realized this time that I was rewarding her and giving her the treat when she would bounce up so after watching a bit of that and adjusting my training, she calmed down quite a bit. I think you can see some progress (last clip is about 10 mins in). I think she's less frantic. It's going to be a while before I can start putting in distractions.

Yeah my Christmas tree is still up...

Summer TG3 TIAD - (11 year old Papillon)

Isn't it funny how they can be? Traveler was like that in heel and front. "You want me THAT close to you? Ewwww"

I found throwing the treat between my legs really really helped him get over it fast and straightened out the front nicely
Thanks I'll try that out! Seriously they are so odd, its hilarious.

I'm ashamed to say I haven't really been working much with Harleigh

However, we are working on "scoot" (back up). Just started teaching that one tonight, it was quite entertaining to watch. LOL. Especially since I lost my clicker and was using just a "good job, yay!" and treats

We are also re-working (I kind of taught her it a little while back) what we call "Front". Which is basically I call her from wherever, then she comes and sits directly in front of me.

My primary goal right now is to work on a formal heel with Lotte. Last time I attempted to teach it, I wound up with close-loose-leash-walking, and I don't think either of us understood where she was supposed to be when in heel position. This time, I've got a plan, a clear idea of where heel is, and a much better sense of timing.

Squeeeeee! Snipe finally "got it" with her rear foot targeting and now her board is approaching vertical quickly! I'm super psyched if you can't tell. Now to find a longer board since she ran out of room on the current one in our last session...

So Quinn is back to learning the handstand. She hasn't done any hind end targetting in probably 10 months andI gave up the handtsand when we couldn't move on from a pile of books.
Well thanks to Chaz I relised I could use a board to work out that problem and session one back she is on a nearly complelty vertical board and holding it well. God I love how easy this dog is to shape.

I love how a little way in he's like "you can't seriously just be asking for two feet on this right? surely you want me to scratch it or SOMETHING"

ETA, I really need to go to bed, but you guys are killing me and I want to try this.
