    Is that you LMS? It's me, MRB...

    Love the video. Hadn't thought of holding my Evil Hound in position to get the idea, and I'm not quick enough / can't get repetitions when she offers it up in a game of Nyah Nyah (can't catch me).

    When would you give the routine a name / command?

    It took rid**** (LOL they blocked the other half of his name, Rid(d)ick) about a day to progress to the point you see in that video.He got it really quickly! I'm think I need to make another video explaining how to get from that point, to using a hand signal.

    Yes its me LMS !
    I think I'll make a video explaining this. But I will progress to the point of adding a command, when I know 100 percent he will follow my hand down into that position every time. So will say "Bow" then hand signal he currently follows (dropping hand to floor in arc infront of his nose), then continuously say "Bow" - hand signal -. To the point where I will say Bow, and he will bow

    I'd have to find a different hand signal - that's the one I use for "Drop" when I expect her butt to hit the ground as well as her belly and elbows.

    I'd probably use a bow at her, ie one hand in front and one behind and bow like I'm a prince in front of a princess or something. Or I could use the sumo stance, but I'm trying to teach her double paw slap on command with that one. But it's as close as I'm willing to get in public to doing a doggy play bow at her.

    I had a go, it was harder than I thought! She can already reach my hand without having to bow because she is so small. She just tilts her head down lol.

    I will try again tomorrow though!
