    In this episode....

    It's a mixed bag single training session that took place this evening. It includes:

    Remote Retrieval (She's now sitting to present it. Hoorah!)
    Up (Climb on my back.)
    Hug (Jump into my arms.)
    Shake (Paw)
    Precision Stool Work
    Touch (Hand and Touch Stick)

    It pretty much represents a typical evening session for us. I like to mix things up quite a bit to keep things interesting for both of us. The only editing in the video is to add captions and titles. Aside from that, it's warts and all.

    The stool is an invaluable part of our regime, particularly for teaching her to "stand". Without the stool, she can tend to move forward towards me, so I'm using the stool for the groundwork.

    very nice video, Ellie is so agile! I like how her ears stand up when she has them forward! :)

    hehe She has wild ears. One bends over, while the other is erect, and I swear she doesn't realise that she has control over them. :)

    Nice videos!! :) I like the walk on your back - did you need help when you first started teaching it, ie luring her onto your back? All those tricks would be awesome to be added on the website - seems like I got a lot of work to do.. lol

    I started by laying on the floor on my belly, and then yes, lured her onto me. I then just kept increasing the height, bit by bit.

    Nice vid, once again, CollieMan. ^^ Mud's ears are like that. One's always less erect than the other, usually flopped over kinda. Keep up the good work!

    Very good CollieMan, Ellie sure does love to get that remote! I was most impressed when you got her to close the door while she was thinking about the remote. Very very good work there.

    Really really good work CollieMan!
    I think I'll start teaching this 'jump on my back' thing soon...:dogsmile:

    Yeah. I just like to make sure that she's really listening from time to time. Like most dogs, when she's doing well, and getting fed, she can tend to go into 'auto-pilot'.

    Just start laying down with your belly on the floor, and treat her over your shoulder. Then, just slowly increase your height from session to session.
