I may have just purchased a spiderman skateboard from a garage sale.

Maybe jam the wheels so it doesn't move, then train him to use it as a platform before anything else.

When it can't move he has the form, I'm just not sure how to transition, with three on with it sliding at all he either pops four on and rides for a second before bailing or nails immediately.

I would probably focus a lot on reward placement and maybe starting out on carpet or something so it has less movement. Sometimes when a dog is throwing out a lot of behaviours one after another I'll toss in additional cues like "stay" "hold it" etc, to help bridge some of the learning.

This.

I started to teach this to Zinga when she was a pup and it helped tremendously to practice on flooring that inhibited the movement a little bit. I think that way they don't feel so inclined to keep more control by placing more feet on the ground. At least that's my theory. LOL

I don't know if I can find a skateboard big enough for Squashies. And I'm 99.9% sure he is the only one who wouldn't be freaked out by this.

Maisy can do a back stall, there for Maisy can do a skateboard.

Thanks, we'll try carpet.... I have none in my house nor work. Grass? We'll try grass!

That's why there are more than one option. Find a ball! You can't use the "my dog is big" excuse....

Siri will run and jump on a skateboard, it's adorable! But I don't have a skateboard, we learned this at puppy class!
