tricky t-day ~ 4 in

I've had both dogs working on getting all 4 paws in smaller and smaller containers.  Every time we practice, all I can think about is the hokey pokey song....you put your right foot in, put your right foot out....especially with Oreo.  He puts his back feet in/out so much, and seems to be having trouble holding the position.  I'm hoping after his next trip to his chiro he'll make some more progress.

Chewy, on the other hand, has done amazingly well!  I'd like Chewy to get in one additional, smaller container, but here is where they are so far.

Fantastic!! Great job Oreo and Chewy! I like your bean bag type cube thingy! Perfect for training Shelties - beats the heck out of kneeling!

Watch out Chewey, pretty soon she'll have you sitting in a milk carton!

Chewy, the circus dog, he sure is getting big. Oreo, you did great too. You guys are so amazing.

Chewy is so clever. How does such a big brain fit in such a little pup?! Oreo was getting it too! You are an amazing trainer!

Chewy you are so amazing. Oreo you are doing great too. Chewy has a smaller body to work into those tiny places.

boy both guys did so well. I was seriously suprised at how hard it was for my guys to have the balance.....it took us awhile. It is funny Oreo really seems to believe it has to do with sitting in the box, I know Sylvia says they will figure out they cant sit but it is cute how Oreo is pretty determined, LOL, what a good boy! Chewy is a little natural, that is a small bowl, he looks like he can even go smaller because of how easy he makes that one look. You guys are superstars!

That is amazing!! Oreo really tried so hard to fit in the small boxes and Chewy did fit every single time!! Talk about being smart....they have the determination and the ability to go very far!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Chewy is just doing such a great job with all his tricks! Oreo is doing fantastic too. I got such a kick out of working on the tricks with my different dogs.

Well done - definitely more difficult for Oreo than for Chewy :-)
