    Red face Training Gloat

    I plan to enroll Carl and Mischa in obedience this year, as well as agility for Carl -- poor Mischa's legs couldn't take all the jumping. I normally do clicker training with them both a few times a week and mostly we focus on party tricks since they both already know sit, drop, stay, come, and are always patient and not piggy about walks/food/guests etc.

    But tonight I decided to do some more advanced tricks with Carl (as well as beginning some heelwork). He's learning the first stages of a trick where he jumps in and out of a suitcase with the lid closed (not zipped ) so he has to open it himself. He already got the second and third step in a 15 minute session... Sometimes I wish I had a less intelligent dog who was more of a challenge. He's just so smart and picks everything up so quick.

    Anyone else want to have a gloat, training related or otherwise?


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...

    Well done, Sierra.

    My only gloat is when I get Frosty to show off for little (and some big) kids - I forget to ask her half the tricks she knows. Ie she knows more tricks than I can remember.

    I taught Jackson to consistently shake paws in one session. Roxie can jump in a circle (a really retarded and not at all backward back flip), roll, crawl, shake hands, high five, bark and beg.

    Please let us know how clicker training goes at obedience school. No one at mine has one and I wonder if all the other dogs will look when it goes off lol.

    Apart from the standards, Lady shakes, waves, begs and crawls. I can't think of anything else to teach her.

    aussiemyf, go for a high five. Roxie's combines a beg and a shake so she jumps up to high 5 me, making it different from a shake. I love doing something with her and saying, 'that was awesome, high 5' and getting a response

    I started by giving her the shake command with high 5 on it. So, 'Shake/high 5' and rewarding the shake. Then I dropped the shake, and made sure she would respond to each separate command the same.
    With the high 5 I simply hold my hand higher so she has to reach for it. If she doesn't touch my hand then no reward.

    Weeeeeell.... apart from the basics.... sit, stay, drop, wait leave it etc.... high five, shake, foot (other shake), touch, target my foot with her foot, cockroach (lie on her back so easy toenail clipping), wave... There are some others but I can't remember... I have too much fun training her We both love it.

    With Bella we had beg, dance (spin around on her back legs), jump, jump through my arms, wait, and some of the ones above, also with the basics... I really should get an extra dog for training so I don't wear Lacey out, I love to train

    'Dance' is the cutest trick! I've always wanted to teach Roly and Lady but they don't have enough hind leg balance.

    I know, it's so cute! It's a shame Lacey won't be able to do it though, too big and clumsy
