tricky t-day ~ bowl in bowl

Even though I've been very busy, with moving and returning to work, I've still been making time each day for some tricks/training.

Chewy is taking 3 classes right now~Silvia' distance class, agility 101, and an agility foundations class. Chewy has so many things he's working on!

However, today is all about Oreo! Two tricks we are working on in Silvia's class are putting a bowl inside a bowl and lifting up 2 side legs. Oreo is doing so much better with the bowls than Chewy. I did throw in one of Chewy's best tricks - stealing treats!- as well as his go to cross paws.

Man Oreo is smart!! Love Chewy helping himself to the treat. LOL

Oreo is so quick to learn stuff, you can see in his eyes how he's concentrating. And Chewy sits there offering cross paws like a gentleman...but his true personality comes through while stealing treats! LOL!

All right Oreo!!! Very good work!!!

Wow - that two leg one looks very hard - Oreo will have it mastered in no time though - he is one smart cookie. And his bowl trick was awesome - wonder if you can teach him to put all the dishes away :) :). My goodness Chewy has grown, he's almost as tall as Oreo now.

Fantastic! I like how Chewy stole the treats off the table -- now that is one good trick I could be good at!

Rob said...

Chewy is very interested in the treats! That looks like a nice floor you have in your new house.

Boy, your guys learn quick. I guess shaping is the way to go. I can't believe your doing 3 classes with Chewy. I did two at once with Beckett, he wasn't overwhelmed but I nearly was :-)

Oreo is so smart, and so patient, too! Wow! Are you going to work on synchronized cross paws? It would be beyond adorable!

Oreo is fantastic!! Great work with the bowls and he is almost there with the side legs up. We don't know that one and may get busy on it!
