Haha I don't know what's better, the double perch or the gallery of creepers in the background.

First on a little end table and then on our overturned garbage can. They're about the same size but the circle is a lot harder for her... also probably because it's not as stable and if I don't hold it for her it tips over and dumps her on her ass which she doesn't like.

I'm so freaking impressed! You are so going to be my go to when I get my grey puppy!

krissy, you might try working on the "feet in a bowl" game! Start with a really big bowl and then start switching to smaller bowls. It helps them to think about getting their feet into a smaller space. Also they kind of have to balance funny when their feet are in a tiny bowl all crammed together, so it helps!
I think that's a really really good idea!

I'm particularly poofy here because I put on a down vest under my sweatshirt. She clawed my back real good a few times and oooouch. Can't put the vest on over top since it's kind of slick. Now I know why all my disc friends have kevlar sport vests.

She really is so light on her feet! I love watching her so much. I love how she lands and it's like "I'm here, feed me."

Holy cow, about 3 minutes of training that with my feet resting on a chair, and my legs are TIRED! You guys must all be super buff from this trick!
LOVE IT!! Also, totally laughing at you.

And I know, I actually messed something up with my back working on the footstall and have taken a week off. My legs feel like jelly when I'm done but that goes away, I don't know if I just twisted weird when working with Traveler or what. Hoping though this will help strengthen my back!

I'm glad you're doing this with Gusto though! He's such a perfect size for it



Here's the shoulder stall I've been working on, though I might backtrack a bit and fix her foot placement. It started out good but as I've gotten higher and higher she decided to do one shoulder rather than utilizing both of mine.

Also, I'm not standing like Sekah yet! I'm on a stool so that I'm higher than if I was kneeling and lower than straight out standing.

And for some more inspiration for all those of you with big dogs. Here's TuffStuff's (Jes) Boone perching on things! Remember he's well over 70 lbs and 25 inches at the shoulder.

I'm thrilled you posted a video. I wasn't too sure how I wanted the perch to look - paws over shoulder, or the dog standing. I'm still not sure what I want, but I like weighing the pros/cons. What was your decision making like with this? I also like how you're not moving much to accommodate the dog. It'll look really nice when you're done.

Also, I totally thought Trav was Didgie to start, and was surprised when a dog appeared from a direction I wasn't expecting.

Pretty much my thought process went like this "What else can they stand on? My shoulders! This is going to be painful, I better wear a jacket."

I never really thought about the paws over the shoulder like you are doing. I did/do have a trick with Traveler I call piggy back where he jumps onto my back while I'm standing and hooks his front feet over my shoulders.

It's slow going though and really painful when the feet miss and go down my neck!

Siri naturally throws herself onto my shoulder when we are shaping and she gets frustrated. Maybe that needs to be a thing?

Cohen and Didge look awesome like that.

I think I shall call it "parrot"
