Does he know touch? Whenever Zander is stuck on something, I cue "touch" and reward from there. It's a decent starting point.

What about throwing a treat over the bowl, then when he comes back from getting the treat click as soon as he turns toward the bowl and give another treat. Then you will be forcing movement toward the bowl.

I could not get Maisy past the "nose touch the bowl" step... the boys just naturally started pawing at it but stuff like that doesn't seem to occur to her. So I ended up kind of baiting her to shake to get her paw to touch the bowl, thusly:

The boys are catching on. Soon we can actually... pivot.

Quick suggestion, I haven't gotten to watch all the videos yet, but it's a common thing that people don't think about. Pay attention to your reward placement. If you are always rewarding with your dog's head facing you, that's where they will want to be. So if you are trying for an independent pivot where the dog has to turn away from you for half of the circle, reward with their head turned away from you. Hope that makes sense!

This is mostly about Pepper, who was so busy frantically scratching at the perch (apparently a family trait AUGGIE) she actually RIPPED OFF the pad I glued to it so it wouldn't be slippery. This is why Payton keeps sliding off later in the video, because it's really slick and he's used to having that pad on top for traction.

I gave Auggie a try but he is apparently completely unable to stand still and likes to throw the perch around. Sigh...



You should all know the reason Payton is wearing puppy pajamies is because he quiets down for like two minutes when I put them on him. And it had this unexpected bonus of making him look like he's in the circus which is so appropriate for this trick.

This is a fun type of thread!

This is Frag two years ago... he's gotten a little better since then (and I've lost some weight in my butt I think. ) and we use a real bowl now instead of roommate's coke case.

I just could NOT get Maisy to stand on the perch, so after a very helpful suggestion I tried changing the perch. First I tried a book and it was still a no-go, then I folded up a rug since she has done "go to your mat" before... and it really, really helped. I'm very proud of her!




Pip is juuuuust starting to understand that now that he'll stand on the perch, moving his rear is the actual point of all of this.



And Squash is totally getting it at this point... although to be fair he already had a good pivot, I just didn't teach it using a perch originally.







ETA: I feel like such a post ***** in this thread, but I've had quite a bit of free time this week to work with them on this.

So this week Megan dropped some stuff off for us to hold until she moves in. This included a hat box, perfect for pivot work Also Teacher Megan helped us with reward placement and we saw better results! Yay!

Also, ignore our ramblings on, the word pen!s is said, so NSFW? lol Also the noise in the background is Megan yelling at her deaf dog. nbd.
