2 on 2 off

Chewy is learning so many new things everyday!  Silvia Trkman's class is really helping me stay focused and organized.  Otherwise, I'd have a difficult time figuring out what to teach him next.

Look at how quickly he caught on to the 2 on 2 off concept (back feet on object, front feet on ground).

I was amazed. Not sure why you tube cut off my subtitles, but I think you can figure it out.  This was our first session.

I think my dogs can do this all day long!

I love the way they both go around to you to get back on. Training more than one was never that calm at my place.

Kristine said...

Nice! They both looked like they were having so much fun. I love how the 2 on 2 off works for so many different things, not just agility contacts. We have applied the foundation to so many other great tricks. Chewy is on his way to super-stardom!

Chewey's way smart! And the both of them circling you and waiting their turn? Amazing!

That is so cute! I was grinning during the second one thinking that if you just had one more dog, you could make them look like a Sheltie Carousel!

Marie said...

The roundabout 2o/2o is the best! Chewy is doing just fantastic.

Chewy is such a quick learner! And the video of both of them working together was just too adorable :) They'd be great at doing some double dog circus-style tricks!
