    I did find it funny when on the first day Batty really "got" sit, hubby came home, asked him to sit and he raced to my feet and sat there proud as punch

    He does need more work with a few of them, mostly his roll and drop for hubby. He gets them perfect for me every time! Just got to rope hubby into doing some more work with him!

    **Gruff voice** Yep, the bugger is definitely YOUR dog!

    Meanwhile I'm giggling thinking it's the cutest thing in the world and hubby is shaking his head in disgust!

    Here's a couple of quick vids of Spirit doing a few things. I know she should be completing the tasks on the first command, but never mind. Angela, do you think you could post some vid of Batty completing the tasks you've written about ? Great written description of each trick, but some vid would be an excellent follow up so we can see what you mean. Ta in advance .....

    Can do, but I'll have to do it when hubby is back on day shift. I need him to operate the video camera

    Awesome, thanks.

    I have tried using the clicker with one of our three dogs, we tried it with our little Chihuahua pup and found that it did not work, he didn't mind the click, he thought that it was just used to everyday use. Perhaps because my cousin thought it was a toy and just went click, click, click, click all day long.. And he just got used to hearing it? Also because she didn't use it to scold him or train him.

    IMO a clicker can only be used for one or the other not both.

    The click must be followed with a reward or reprimand or it has no meaning to the dog what-so-ever.

    No dog automatically knows that the click = a treat. All the dog hears is a weird click that means nothing. You have to teach them that the click = treat or the dog will just ignore it.

    In other words sitting there going click click click will teach the dog that the sound means nothing at all.
