Well, these aren't exactly new tricks.
I joined a training group on facebook, and this month we are working on "targeting" tricks. Some dogs are beginners and are doing stuff like pressing the easy button.
That's one we covered and mastered many moons ago.
I decided to revisit some tricks that we worked on in Silvia's trick class, but never quite mastered.
Alas, we still haven't mastered them!
Anyway, here is Oreo still working on limp on 2 legs, and Chewy learning how to do Oreo's "flip/flop" trick, where the dog puts their paws on your feet and walks with you.
Chewy doesn't get that in order to walk, it helps to stand up! He ends up dragging his butt on the ground like a seal. Maybe we can make that a trick?
We went to see Oreo's behaviorist this weekend, and she gave me A LOT of homework to do. Not sure if I'll have treats left over for tricks for the next few months.
Chewy came to the appointment, and the doctor loved him so much she asked for his pedigree (she's thinking about getting a sheltie).
Gee, I wonder why she never asked for Oreo's? Oh, maybe because he wouldn't come out from under the chair! Silly boy.
