Buddy thought this trick was confusing too.
I had a lot of trouble getting him to cross his leg over, too,
when i tried to train his OTHER leg----
i'd *HOPED* learning the first leg would help him "get it", but NOPE.
STill, a bunch of body shifting, offering wrong paw, zoning out on me, etc etc.
THEN he reeeeally got annoyed, gave me a dirty look even, for ignoring his 'first' leg being performed so well. All that praise for his 'first' leg, was now, earning him no
att'n. Very confusing to Buddy. And i used an entirely different 'target' for the second leg.
i had to keep moving us from room to room, outdoors, switching up rewards, mixing in tricks he KNOWS to keep Buddy in good mood about it all, lol.
Buddy had a lot
of trouble with this one, too. mmmMmm.
i'm starting to notice,
no one yet, has posted anything like, "Oh, my dog got this trick very readily
(or *maybe*, there ARE dogs who easily 'get this' easily,?
but our fellow members here don't mention that -- so we
don't feel bad about ourselves? lol)
