tricky t-day ~suitcase

I attempted this trick before, but didn't have the proper suitcase for the trick.

Well, I'm going on a couple trip in the next few months. Perfect excuse for buying a trick friendly suitcase.

I think everyone should teach this trick for the sheer cuteness factor. But I'm not sure how dogs like Honey the Great Dane, would find a big enough suitcase! Maybe we could get Honey to pull the suitcase while Muesli (their kitten) is in it?

 Oreo learned this in two sessions...here is the progression.


Maybe I needed to buy a larger suitcase to fit Oreo's ginormous tail!

Hi Sara, it looks like Oreo is ready for the trip, he needs to get his tail in though cos that'll be a dead give away if the hotel staff see that thing sticking out!

Lian said...

Oh! So clever and cute!

Sheltie tails....always need an extra large.

Priscilla said...

Clever Oreo! Make sure you check your suitcase the minute before you leave home as Oreo might be in instead of your personal stuff.

Oreo is such a darling! You know how much I love this trick - it is the cutest thing! Good job Oreo!

Heehee..you should practise taking all the clothes out of a packed suitcase and then getting in it..could be handy!!
Well done Oreo - nice work
xx

that is a cool trick - but it looks like Oreo only just fits in that suitcase. Oh coarse the best trick would be for Oreo to take the clothes out as quickly as you put them in - that way you can't go anywhere without him :) :) :)

That's so sweet! I have a suitcase like that so we'll have to try it when Ludo's better.

Oh Oreo! This is perhaps the most adorable trick you've shown off so far. I need to get Lola to learn this, too!

Helen said...

So Oreo can travel in your carry-on, LOL.

Kathy said...

LOL, ok I have a mental picture of you all going through security with your red suit case and that big very fluffy tail hanging out of the back! Can you imagine them wondering what you have to declare? LOL.
Oreo did terrific, what a little super star and what a good sport!!! He truly is such a talented job, two thumbs up for Team Oreo!!!!!!

Kathy said...

Gosh, my tylenol must have kicked in, LOL, I meant Oreo is a talented DOG and he did a fantastic JOB, I must have meshed allthoughts to put he is a talented job, geeze Louise, sorry about that, hahahaha.

He is so cute and so smart. He was making sure that nose and mouth was in the right place to get those treats. Helen

For these tricks, I wish you would leave the music off so we could hear your direction to Oreo - that would be so helpful when learning to teach it to our own dogs!

Diana said...

LOL, I think you need a bigger suitcase. What a great trick!!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Great trick - Oreo learns things so fast it takes your breath away!

And I had to laugh at your comment about Honey & Muesli learning a trick together - at the moment, if I can get them in the same room without trying to kill each other, it's already a great success! HA! HA! But one can hope...! (Would make a cute trick, wouldn't it?)

Excellent job! This trick was so cute - huge awww factor! I love how in the one part he had half his body in the suitcase and half out. He really did catch on fast.
