tricky t-day ~ side legs

This trick is quickly becoming Chewy's favorite.  We still have a ways to go to be able to fade the object, but he is getting good.  I've always been so impressed by this trick when I see Silvia's dogs do it.  I never thought I'd be able to get my dogs to lift both legs.  Exciting!

First off...you have a basement! How cool! Second, Chewy is so BIG! And so creative too! :) And Oreo was offering cross paws while Chewy was busy, just in case. It worked too!

I love that trick too and it is awesome to see Chewy doing it so well! He really doesn't need the prop any more except to suggest the trick. It's way too cute when he starts offering it during cik/cap!

I love how patiently Oreo waits there, even when Chewy steps on him! Chewy looks like he might be able to tap dance by Christmas!

I love it!! I can never get over how you can train one without the other being right in the way.

Haha! Chewy is such a silly, cute boy! I love his sudden 'must lift my leg!' desire when doing something totally different. :)

Luna said...

That looks complicated! :D

Looks like Chewy is learning how to do Karate. With his back foot up it's like he is doing a Karate Chop!

I love that trick, it is the coolest ever, we are still working on it, but Chewy seems a natural, I LOVE cik/cap, we are doing it on course now and it is sooooo cool. Check out the rear end awareness with Chewy and I love the kicking the back leg, I named that one kick and it is one of the dogs favorites for some reason. WHat superstars you both are!!!!
