I'll call this one "penguin" when it's done. We just started working on it last night after seeing a friend's video.

That is too cute for her own good.

So awesome!!

I decided I want to teach Onyx to get me a beer from the fridge. We're working on retrieving a full can and opening the fridge...which she finds challenging for some strange reason. She already know how to close doors, so soon we should be able to string it all together. Has anyone taught this?

In theory, yes. I stopped when it became apparent that Cohen found beer cans/bottles unpleasant to hold... and I clearly wasn't going to waste my time on any other sort of container. Beer or bust.

The crux of the behaviour is that you need to back chain it. Where are you running into issues?

Well we just started the other day. She is having the hardest time pulling on the rope to open the fridge, which is bizarre but I guess I haven't worked on her pulling something that isn't tug with me on the other end? But we're getting there, she's opened it a couple times. She doesn't mind the metal can and didn't mind the heaviness of a full one either, so that's good. I think we'll work on everything separately for a bit longer and then try stringing it together.

I taught my Lab mix. I taught each behavior individually and when he was doing them all consistently put it together.

A poor quality video


My dad has been harassing me to teach Crossbone, but we don't drink canned beer! I can image the mess (and pain) of glass bottles

Awesome!!

Yeah we often have bottles, but I guess this will be reserved for the times we have cans.

I'm using soda water cans to teach (less expensive!) and they pop real easy. Malinois don't exactly have soft mouths....I wrapped a couple in duct tape just so she could get the hang of picking up something that heavy, and then as soon as I took the tape off she popped it. We'll see how this goes!

Em and I just had a fantastic tugging session. REAL tugging. Like, because she was enjoying it, not because I was asking her to.

I could cry. We've struggled with her squashed tug drive for years. I think I might have figured it out.

This dog needs to live forever. And ever.

I've been adding in my "swinging arm" outside Gabby's head for a couple days now during heeling. Laying a good foundation is SO nice. She barely even noticed it. She's putting all the pieces together for a heeling start. And it looks so darn pretty. We've been doing a lot of set ups with 1-2 steps of heeling and she's nailed all of the starts. Not an ounce of hesitation.

WHY COULDN'T THIS DOG HAVE COME INTO MY LIFE when she was younger, or at least why can't she have something that isn't PRA!?

My friend had noticed this thread. She has tried with her dog, Lotta, what was suggested about shake. So, she can teach it to her.

Although you are talking about behaviors in this thread what you are teaching now, my friend thought she could tell also about behaviors what she should/is going to teach:
Stay, bow, crawl,
recall. My friend was given suggestions about that.
There are also other tricks my friend could teach.

My friend would like to know what that behavior is:
