Hello I'm New Here



I'm new on this forum. I'm from the UK and I have a chocolate roan cocker spaniel dog called Ollie. He's 3 yrs old and I love teaching him tricks. He adores it too and gets so much enjoyment out of it. I only use positive reward methods to train him. I've already taught him to:

- Sit
- Lie Down
- Roll Over
- Wave (wave his right paw in the air)
- High Five (touch my raised hand with his left paw)

I'm currently in the process of teaching him:

- Stand (stand on his hind legs)
- Bow
- Crawl
- Play dead
- Beg

I hope to get some tips from you guys and I hope to see you and your dogs around the forum. :)
