OK, it seems as if we've spent a whole month on spinning tricks. I must say, I'm a bit dizzy.
This week's trick was "grab bag". I decided to teach the dogs to spin on a perch. This one was pretty easy for Oreo, since he has had lots of practice spinning on his peanut physio ball. Chewy had some trouble making the complete turn without falling off, but he got it in the end.
Chewy is also getting close to being able to do a verbal only cue on spin left ~ his unnatural turning direction. I'm pretty proud of him for that. I think it must be like forcing a right handed person to write with their left hand; they can do it, but it feels wrong.
I know Chris is going to ask, where is the video of ME spinning on the perch. I was going to try, but was afraid I'd break the box! Believe me, I spent many years spinning on the 4inch balance beam, I know I could do it (with some practice).
