I am so frustrated with this trick!! I just can't seem to get it right!! I started with using a post-it, but that wouldn't stick to the nose well enough. In stead of using his paw to get it off, Cooper would just shake his head. I moved on to a hairband thingy and that had the effect i wanted, but... I lost it. So after seeing a tutorial on You tube I tried sticky tape. But... my dogs have non-stick noses My friend suggested using Duct-tape, that will stick to anything But I am afraid of pulling out hairs. Used a piece of string, but that is shaken off I think I will have to buy a new hairthingy, but I haven't found one big enough to fit loosely around Cooper's mouth. Any way, do you teach this trick lying down or in a sit? Maybe lying down is easier for the dog? I have been teaching it in a sit, as I want them to do it in a sitting position. Maybe I should start lying down and progressing to a sit, when they get the hang of it? Does anyone have advice? I love to hear it!!
