Oh. My. God. LOOK AT HIM.

HAHA That's so awesome, I love how he's carefully placed his feet so he's not on you at all! ^_^
Right? Yay for not getting squished when he falls!

Um okay, I want to teach Georgie to perch on my hand now. But I'm pretty sure she's too big LOL. That's awesome. Talon looks great too!

I went looking for a balance disc at Wal-Mart because their website said they had them... they did not, but they DID have a peanut. So I bought it. All four dogs have been on it now, Georgie and P are the best at it, but Augs is a little bit out of game shape, and of course Pepper I had to work just to convince her to even get all four paws up on it.
Question - when you start doing this sort of FitPaws stuff, how long do you do it each day? The dogs can't really tell me "I'm sore, I don't wanna" and I know for a fact the boys will keep doing it even if it hurt. I don't want to overdo it...

Ok, I wasn't going to but now I have to. Don't you mean "Yay for not geting squashed when he falls!" ? Sorry

And yeah, Art has always been the king of balancing games. lol

Do it!! I think it *might* be doable if you us one hand for two feet and the other two paws on the other hand? lol I'd love to see a picture of that though

I was working on this with Skye too tonight but she knocked over the chair and scared herself, so that was the end of that.

Puppy is good though?

So many awesome posts! I looove Art's hand stall/perch. Gotta keep that one in mind for Mega... though my wrists are weak.

Here's a video of Cohen's foot stall -> beg. It used to take her a long time to find her balance (and confidence) to pop up into a beg, but now she's doing it pretty quickly and often without prompting. It's really hard work for her though. It tires her right out.



On FB we were talking about how stalls get easier as you get stronger and your dog gets more proficient. It's amazing how much easier it can get. Cohen feels almost feather light when landing now.

Oh I so want this.

Brace yourself, Webster. This will happen!

Zuma took forever when she was first learning to sit pretty in the footstall. I can still only get a few reps out of her before she quits and I had to move it earlier in my disc routine so that she wasn't as tired when she did it. Core strength workout for the win!

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.
Yachi Hirai has one in his disc dog routine, I believe it's a sit pretty shoulder stall.

I've thought about the hand perching for the girls. I know Summer could do it because I already balance her in my hands (plural, my hands are small) all the time. It's just not on cue.
