I was working with Bayleigh on a shoulder stall today. Though, I admit that I didn't watch any of the videos so I don't know if what we're doing is considered a proper shoulder stall. She does jump onto my shoulder though and I think it's super cute.

Edit: I went back and watched some videos and we are doing the same thing. Yay!

Ha! Nice idea. I might have to give that a whirl!

A friend of mine is working on a foot stall with her dog. She's made crazy fast progress with her 50lb dog -- I think it took her about 4 sessions to get to where she is now. She's a very accomplished trainer and her dog picks new things up like crazy, but I thought her method was really interesting and wanted to share it here.

She shaped Hero to perch on her shoes before she ever put them on her feet, and then gradually increased the height. Pretty inventive.

That's a great method. I like it. That is A LOT of dog to hold on your feet though! She's going to get a good leg work out! Very impressive.

I wonder what the upper limit on dog weight is for foot stalls. lol. Depends on the person too I realize, but since most of us are women that don't look like we bench 200 lbs... lol. I will personally feel very accomplished if I can get a back stall with close to 60 lbs.

I have thought about targeting the shoes for a long time but kept doubting the logistics. Thanks! We'll have to try it now!

I like how she did that with the shoes on her. I've seen/heard people doing it with props and putting shoes onto different objects and having the dog target that but I never thought it was that great idea. I like though how she had them on her because that allows the dog to still get used to the movement and actually getting onto a person rather than putting it on a stationary object and then having to transfer it over to a body.

I had the dogs get onto a stool and then put my legs up and then started shaping them getting onto my feet. The shins helped as a bridge between that because they already had the idea that this was something that involved getting onto me.

So I would just mark and treat for front feet and then for shifting their weight forward, then for picking up back feet and so on. Just be careful about what you mark for and not rewarding digging at your feet. I don't know if it's common or just my dogs but both kept offering dig on my feet and a few missed marks on my part had them doing it with gusto. And I'll tell you, nothing like fighting them with that to tire you out.

I think I could probably do a dog that was in the low 50s. I'm not sure how much bigger though. Traveler in the low 40s and I feel like I could probably do a dog bigger than him but not 100% sure. I've got small size 7 feet but I think once the dog gets it that's not really that big of deal, but the training part is brutal.
