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?
