What Occy said - I second.
Most all of the dogs in my family we have taught to "drop dead" ie roll over with all paws in the air when they are shot "Bang".
It's a bit hard with Frosty as upside down with all her paws in the air is one of her favourite positions. Hard to beat her to it with a command / cue word.
Getting a dog to do a trick that is a little bit complicated, requires breaking it down into lots of little steps and progressively upping the stages adding a step on to get the click (yes)/treat.
This used to have everything open without logging in but a rego is free and this is the bit you are looking for right now.
How to Write a Training Plan?Part One | Karen Pryor Clickertraining
There are a number of tricks and exercises that put strain on the skeleton of a dog and more so with dogs that are low to the ground with long backs. I've got a friend whose lapsoo apso (scuse spelling) is currently confined to a crate because her back end is paralized. Nobody's too sure why but common causes would include a slipped disc in the spine caused by too much jumping up on and off couches and the like. Her vet has recommended that her dogs not be allowed to make a jump higher than their shoulder height. So you may want to investigate what tricks are suitable for your dog's basic structure before you teach them or you may make the local vet very wealthy.
This is also why our Obedience club won't let dogs start learning agility until after they are 1 yo, and heights of obstacles are matched to the heights of the dogs.
well after posts 2, 11 and 12 and this one
you can hardly complain when the teenagers post "irrelevant" fluff.
Coure we can - this is just a taste of their own medicine
Well if you can't beat 'em, join em.
Yea if you beat em you go to jail
The more the merrier.
Boxer, promise you'll video Bella doing this trick when she can. It'll be great to watch.
Thanks babe! xx
