Gee, I hope I don't disappoint anyone this week. When I wrote that last week's trick was a precursor to this weeks, I think many of you were picturing Oreo spinning around the broomstick, like Gene Kelly did the lightpost in Singin' in the Rain.
It's not happening. Not yet anyway. Good idea thought!
What I did shape was Oreo holding the broomstick close to his body, in hopes that he could "hold" other objects.
This trick is harder than it looks, since it is an unnatural thing for the dog to do. You'll see Oreo keep looking toward the camera. He's actually looking toward the kitchen and my computer. I had my "child sounds" desensitization CD playing very, very quietly. Of course, he could still hear it. Then, at the end, he hears the UPS truck, which ended our trick time.
