    so after working on this trick for a little while Bolt finally learned the footstall! Now just to work on staying up there longer :) This trick is quite the workout!

    Fabulous trick!(y):D Same questions as 2spoiledaussies, how did you teach this and how much does Bolt weigh? Would love to teach my boy, he weighs 21.7 kilos, maybe a bit too heavy???

    Nice work.
    LOL definetly not a trick for us (or I really need to do more workouts) since Mazzel weighs 35 kg (and I weigh only 25/30 kg more) :ROFLMAO:

    I havent weighed bolt in a while so im estimating here, he's probably around 30 pounds. I first taught him to stand on the soles of the shoes alone, and have them stacked onto books and then add more books until he was comfortable jumping onto them, then I used the tutorial here: :)

    That's too cute!

    My boy currently weighs 28.5 kg and he's way to heavy for me to do a foot stall with without one of us getting injured because I'm only 53.5 kg (he's more than half my weight) the back stall I can do though.

    Wow! Great tutorial! 30 pounds? Maybe I can do it then! Thanks :)

    My boy weights 21.7 kilos which converts to just over 47 lbs. I may see what that weight feels like on my feet before trying this trick. I've strong legs, so that may help. Great video, very clear, thanks for the share:)(y)

    I think Holly might be too small for this trick :LOL:, not sure she would be able to jump from the floor onto the soles of my shoes.

    It seems you really need a medium size dog (or small but good at jumping or really strong legs) for this trick.

    Don't think Holly could do a backstall either (unless I crouch really really low).

    With Holly she may be able to do back stall if you get down on your hands and knees. Depends though on how 'big' you are:)

    This looks like such a fun trick. Would learning the backstall first be easier? Luna weighs around 42 pounds (19-20 kg range) so we can do it yay!! although I weigh 106 pounds... I definitely think it is do able. I can pick her up easy enough and my legs are definitely stronger. Although I'm worried about the jumping on her joints, I'm guessing I should wait until she is 18 months. I guess during the wait I can start building up leg strength hahaha

    Yeah, I suppose I could do that but then we would be limited on where she could do it.

    I'd love to teach this to Remi, expect he is 50 pounds and has no balance what so ever no matter how often we practice balance exercises. :pLOL Good job tho, that seems like a tough trick to teach. :)
  16. MaryK Honored Member

    You could use a Yoga Mat for yourself, or something similar, but I can see your point:)
  17. MaryK Honored Member

    :LOL: Yes I think maybe that's one trick which will not make it onto Remi's list. My boy's a little lighter, about 2.5 lbs, with fabulous balance but not sure I can take that weight!:rolleyes:

    I want to attempt it, but with all the factors taken in to account I don't want him falling and landing on my face! :ROFLMAO:

    :ROFLMAO: That thoughts crossed my mind too with my boy! Even though his balance is great, there's still that risk I won't be up to the trick, though I'm sure he'd find it hilarious falling on my face:eek:
