tricky t-day~pee trick

Our closing date has been annoyingly delayed, so you get a tricky t-day! However, no bells and whistles as usual.

Silvia warned me to teach the "pee trick" before Chewy was lifting both hind legs exclusively. So, I put the box off to the side, and Chewy learned this trick in seconds. I decided to teach it to Oreo as well. Going to try and add duration now, as well as work the opposite leg.

At one point, my clicks seem really late in this video. Pretty sure something went wacky with the video editing. I hope my reflexes aren't that slow!

Too smart! Hope the closing happens soon. Delayed closing are pretty common, sorry to say.

Very well done!!! Ricky gets so excited with the "boy dog" trick that now he barely lifts his foot off the ground, repeats as fast as he can several times, and demands the reward! Duration is out the window! LOL!

Sure hope you have the closing soon and can get moved in!

Isn't Silvia clever?
What a clever trick for boy dogs!!!!! Hehehe :) And your boys are doing it so well!

Wow Chewy is so full of energy! Both dogs are very clever!

Reilly / Bree said...

Oh look - Chewy is getting his bushy tail - he is looking so handsome! What a great trick to learn and he picked up so quick - hmm maybe I should teach Reilly and "IT" this - both of them actually squat like girls to pee - neither of them has ever shown any inclination to lift a leg. Denny on the other hand is already doing that :)
