Hi Everyone ~ I came across this site because I was googling around for new tricks to teach my dog. This looks like a very nice community. I adopted my dog, Buddy, exactly a year ago from a rescue organization. They pulled him from a shelter just hours before he was scheduled to be put down. He's a 3 year old mix of some kind and weighs about 19-20 pounds. He's a really wonderful dog (aren't they all) and I've fallen madly in love with him. I took him to small dog obedience right after I adopted him and immediately caught on how fast he learned and how much he liked to be engaged so I started teaching him some tricks. I also discovered that he's terrified of clickers. I tried a softer clicker, a clicker under a towel, using a ballpoint pen - but he would just shut down. So instead I use the bingo word "yes" which seems to work well. Since I've got him, we've gone to two obedience classes and we've just started small dog agility last week (not to compete just for fun). I took this video in May of 07, just a few months after getting him. I know these tricks are fairly basic, but there ya go.. Ooops, just got notified that I can't post a video until I've posted 10 comments. How annoying. Well, if you want to see the video go to google video and search for "Buddy Shows Off" It comes up first in the search results. Maybe some other kind soul could post the actual link?
