SO impressed with Gusto!!!

I kind of followed what you did and started luring more, and we have grasping of the pole now, most of the time. man this trick is hard.

Oh my gosh, that is too cute!

Luring was definitely the key for us. It's amazing how fast it came together once I got him reaching around. I went to a toy pretty quickly once he was wrapping around the pole most of the time with the lure.

Gusto still has a little trouble finding his balance with the toy in his arms sometimes, but he definitely gets it now. And it is so ridiculously cute I make him do it just for the smile

I guess everyone has moved on from this, but I haven't. Lol. Still stuck here.

I have no photographic evidence but I would just like to say that I ave officially taught a greyhound to sit pretty. It's not exactly consistent but we just had an almost 10 second long sit pretty with no flailing, bouncing, rabbit hopping, slumping. She was just sitting there eating cheese as easy as you please. Awesome.

Congrats! That's awesome! That's no easy feat. She'll be a killer trick dog yet.

I'm also having trouble keeping up with Trick of the Week, and I'm not training tricks from the ground up like some people. But it does help keep things fresh.

Oh don't worry - I have not moved on from this one, either. I just haven't gotten video in a while

Can't wait to see pics/video, krissy!

We're working on cleaning it up, and giving her core time to rest. She's getting a heck of a workout just doing the sit pretty part.
