So we're working on a knee stall, I guess it's called. Payton will get up there but he mostly just kind of lays flat LOL. I'm trying to get him to stand up and he's just not convinced. I shifted to laying on the floor and putting my legs on the bed so they won't move, see if I can't get him to feel confident with that and then start moving away from the bed.

Auggie almost immediately jumped up on my legs, and he'll sit, but his butt and front paws are on my legs and his hind legs are sprawling out to the side. =P Trying to get him to stand up just results in him whacking my knees and scratching my legs and barking at me. Ohhhhhh Auggie...

Great work with Auggie. :3

Can someone post a video of a shoulder stall? I'd like to see one in action.

... I guess I could just youtube it, but you guys are more interesting.

Also, I have a theory that teaching a perch/foot target on a progressively smaller target/bowl can result in a handstand if the requisite strength is there. I haven't tried it myself, but figured I'd share.

Yeah my dogs know to jump on things generally speaking however I guess all the work I've done with ME particularly she is supposed to jump over me.

I'll have to get a video of Mia. She cracks me up.

I haven't had the chance to work on it in a week or more because we had to go down to western washington and there are so many dogs there I can't work on much without being surrounded lol

Before we left he was doing pretty good, we are currently working on building his muscle up a bit and balancing on different objects which really helped. The biggest thing we have to work on his him not throwing himself at my feet the moment I put them up and then come crashing down on my face. T_T lol He needs some more impulse control.

I've also started laying on my belly with my legs bent so my feet are in the air and having him jump and balance on that to give him some more practice balancing without worrying about falling too far. That seemed to help a lot.

I'm going to try again for the first time in a week tonight, so we'll see how it goes!

It is possible my judgment may have been impaired when this decision was made.



On the plus side... sure he's heavy, but (and at the risk of opening myself up to crude jokes) at least those long legs are sorta like safety nets. And after a dog this big has been walking around on your back, it kinda feels like you've just had a deep tissue massage.

This is Art's perch work. He was working on this before and now he's really good at staying while david lifts him up and moves him around.

David helped to get pics of Talon, this is David on his stomach with knee's bent. Our legs/feet are more stable that way lol

And on David on his back with legs up

He's a bit shaky still getting on our legs when they are straight up, but that may be because he just spent the last week playing constantly with Zoe lol We are working on making our legs less shaky too lol

Very rudimentary, but he's getting it!



Right after this I tried to work on sitting pretty and completely fudged it I kept accidentally clicking too early and catching him when he was jumping UP, rather than sitting back on his haunches. My timing has just been so blah lately, I'm out of practice (though I think some of it with stuff like this is that he doesn't any core strength built up).
