    Hi, my name is Kaat and I live in the Netherlands.
    I have 2 dogs:

    Mazzel (which is dutch for luck), he is a labrador retriever x golden retriever x stabyhoun (dutch breed), he is 4 years old and he is my big boy!
    Boef (which is dutch for bandit), she is labrador retriever x bernese mountain dog, she is 2 years old and my 'little' girl!

    I have 'seriously' started training my dogs tricks almost one year ago and we have made great progress.

    I do treibball, obdience, doggydance (tricks), attention-balance-coördination (abc) exercises, rear and awarness and agility, all at home. With Boef I'm currently in an obdience class.

    8. chill (lie sideways)

    and i love the two tricks you are currently working on, i have never even thought of "look up" as a dog trick, :ROFLMAO: can't wait to get started, soon as i think of a funny question to ask Buddy to trigger him to look up! lol.
    and i have to teach that lift rear leg trick, too, my dog only lifts his paws on cue if i touch each leg and say "lift".

    Impressive trick list for just a year for TWO dogs!! :eek: Hope to see you posting around here a lot!

    @ Anneke, thank you. wat grappig om een Nederlander tegen te komen ;)
    @ tigerlily, thank you, they are my sweeties <3.
    well maybe you could do something with gazing at the stars or the dog looks up as in rolling with his eyes, good look with figuring that out ;)
    thank you! all credit goes to them, I sometimes feel like I am getting a cue rather that the other way around.

    Well, yeah, I see what you mean, must have put it the wrong way the first time:oops: Silly me. I meant that a lot of new members don't already train tricks, agility, and, yeah, LOL:ROFLMAO: I find that once you start training, you can't stop!!:D

    @dogster hihi I see what you mean, I didn't want to look like someone who is going to far with training ;)
    Wel sometimes I do a bit of treibball exercises and sometimes a bit of agility and all those other things, like I said its just for fun at home.
    @the others, thank you!
