That's so neat! Glad to see a good portion of your training session. This trick is totally on my hit list. I'm really impressed with how far you've gotten already.

I'm trying to get Kimma to actually be "dead," too. She can "play dead" but it's only for like 2 seconds LOL.

For today, I'm happy that Jari finally got a handstand in a new environment! I didn't think he would ever do it :)

First time playing find heel outside and first time playing without a target. It's not perfect, but given the circumstances I'm proud. <3

My friend had just noticed this thread.

It's trick season here again!!!! Time to work on new tricks so that they can be perfected by next disc season. I LOVE TRICKS. yay!
She has a young dog, Lotta, who isn't trained much yet and she is also interested in teaching Lotta tricks. She would need some ideas of what to teach to Lotta. We have created this thread: http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270900
We tried to ask for a list of tricks there. However, it seems that other users may not be interested about it. My friend would like to know now in which thread we could ask for ideas of what to teach to Lotta if not in that thread we created? My friend has checked weekly trick threads, however she has seen only one trick that is easy enough for Lotta in one of the threads. There is no information of how to teach it though. So, in which thread we could discuss about it?

Today we worked on taking things and holding them.

My friend is also interested in teaching that but Lotta should first be teached to take and drop on cue. We have a thread about it: http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270260
Could someone advice on it? We have put also new questions there.

I know I'm reviving a crazy old thread here... but Morgan and I have been working on a trick. I don't really know where else to show it.



I know it's not terribly impressive, but as many of you have probably noticed, I'm not the brainiest of trainers. It makes me happy to get something new into our repertoire, however simple. :)

That's awesome! And simple/impressive are totally relative. Hugo can do all kinds of tricks but this is one of our unicorns. He just doesn't understand balancing on his face, lol.

See, don't sell yourself short. My dog knows some pretty impressive (to me)tricks like weaving through legs, beg, bang you're dead, giddy up (where he stands on my feet with his two from paws and walks with me as I go forward). But do you think I can teach him this?

How did you do it? He moves back everytime the treat comes forward.

How did you do it? He moves back everytime the treat comes forward.
To start, I just put him in a Sit and told him to Wait (our informal version of "Stay"). I cupped my hand under his chin just to keep him from looking down and gently put the treat on his nose. The first several times I told him Okay (release) almost immediately as the treat touched his face, and then a second longer each attempt after.

A couple days in, once he had some practice and a better idea of what we were doing, I changed the command to Still. He caught on pretty quickly that the new command was for this specific trick.

At this point, I still have to put my hand under his chin to put the treat in place, but I can walk halfway across the room and make him wait a few moments before the release. And he's getting better at flipping the treat into his mouth instead of dropping it on the floor. :p
