Ludo has impressed us so much with his "hands up/bang bang" routine, that I decided to try and teach Oreo just to do "beg" today.
I've tried in the past, but I gave up because Oreo kept laying down when I tried to lure him up with the treat.
Today, I persevered and we succeeded! Rather quickly I might add! What you can accomplish when you have a day off from work! I even got my taxes done as well!
The begging, where Oreo is no longer resting against my leg, was truly his first time doing it on his own. I just thought I'd give it a shot while I had the camera on. Oreo just loves to perform for the camera!
Now, we don't want poor Misty to feel left out. I tried doing "beg" with her, but it didn't go quite as well. We'll keep working on it. So, here she is showing off her cross paws, and some improved elephant work.
