    I have tried to teach Dodge to keep a treat on his nose a few month back,well he didnt like it very much to put it nicely,kept turning his head away as soon as I tried placing the treat on his nose and so didnt keep on trying,I want him to like doing the tricks and enjoy the training.
    Well yesterday we was playing with a tennisball in the lounge and as he sat really calm and nicely tried to put the ball onto his nose . . . blow me down with a feather,HE DID IT!! I could ve kicked myself,cause I didnt have the clicker at hand:censored:!!!!
    So tried it later on last night with the clicker and he held still for a couple of seconds,yeeeepeeeee.
    Today,only just actually,done it again with the clicker and he held it for ten seconds ))piow,me on the floor with excitement((
    Ooooh my clever little boy :ROFLMAO:didnt think he would ever do this :LOL:

    Dodge has trained you well ... I can just imagine his little face with the ball on his nose thinking "I wonder what she will do when I hold this ball on my nose for 10 seconds" - "cool - it makes her roll on the floor" :D

    I got so excited today because my little boy was holding a basket in his mouth for .. well maybe 3 seconds. :)

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet ! His eyes just talk so much.
    Well - from the other message - send him over to me when you go on holidays ;-) But he might come back with an australian accent bark :D

    I tried to take a pic of Smokey and the basket, but it's too early. It's just a small basket that can hold hmm.. 2 apples maybe. Just right for his size though.

    Omg, that is the most adorable picture!!! His expression is priceless!! :p Isn't that wonderful?? Sometimes they just need a break for a little while, then it's like suddenly it dawns on them what we want - oh, she wantd me to do THAT?? Pft, I can do it, watch this!!! :LOL: (And here's hoping that all along, they're not thinkin' .. I'm holdin' this out for a while, then one day I'll knock her over with my intelligence, and she'll think I'm soooo cute!!!) :LOL::ROFLMAO:

    It's a long term plan - to bring whatever is in the basket to a specific person. So if the kids want an apple, I plop it into the basket and say "find Michael" for example. It would save me lot's of walking up and down the stairs ;-)
