I'm trying to teach Nevada (my 1 year old BC/Lab mix) how to cross his paws, but he's just not getting it. And he's not very interested in clicker training, honestly. He's not the most food motivated dog. He gets very bored and just wants to play instead of training. When we were at the dog park about a week ago I had him very focused on me with play reinforcement instead of treats and we did training that way and it seems to work much better, but I know I can't really do that with clicker training, especially because if I were to use play instead of treats it would distract him. I'm so confused and not sure what to do about this... But anyways, back to the "cross your paws" trick. I went off of this video: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GlctAeBv44[/media] but we are having trouble. He understands that he needs to touch the object with his paw and ONLY his right paw, but as soon as I start putting it to the other side of him for him to have to cross his paws to touch it, he just moves over to where he can get a straight shot at it instead of having to cross his paws. I'm not sure what I can do to keep him still. Plus, he has a tendency of laying down with one back leg under him so he can roll over onto his side easier for a tummy rub.:dogtongue2: Well, this doesn't really help when I'm trying to get him to lift up one of his paws to do something because it makes him not completely steady anymore. lol Please help! Any advice on both of these subjects that I have mentioned (Nevada not being much into clicker training because he isn't very food motivated and help on the "cross your paws" trick) would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
