    Welcome, your dogs are beautiful.
    Do you teach them tricks, if so what tricks do they know? Do you use a clicker?
  3. AlexandraGR Well-Known Member

    Yes, i teached them some tricks. And I am using a clicker. I will post a short movie with Aksel doing some tricks (com, stay,sit,down, play dead, be sad -head down-, roll over, turn around, speak, tank you -laying only with front paws- ,shake hand ). Now we are working at hide ( paw on face), go back (moving back), and please( crossed paws) . After that i wnt to teach him to bring me toys by name. Aksel loves plush toys, he has a lot of (a duck, a dolphin, a dinosaur etc.) and i want to teach him to retrieve the indicated toy. No i have a question: how i should do this? to teach him all toys by name , individualy?or to teach every toy by introducting a new one and so he will have to bring only the asked toy. I mean for example: the fisrt toy will be the duck, after he will be able to retrieve teh duck when i will tell him "duck" how to go on? to introduce toy no.2 dino , for example, and to ask him to retrieve the duck too or to teach him all toys individualy and after he will be able to retrieve them by name to put them all together and to ask him to retrieve a certain toy? Does any dog of you knows to do that?

    AND WOW, nice list of tricks, too! You are doing something right!!:ROFLMAO:

    //" and i want to teach him to retrieve the indicated toy. No i have a question: how i should do this? to teach him all toys by name , individualy?"//

    This is very very easy to teach, with brand new toys. My dog learns a NEW toy name instantly, IF i tell him the new name AS HE FIRST MEETS THE NEW TOY.

    Here's how i did it:
    However, my particular dog, has a HECKUVA time, learning NEW names assigned to OLD toys, not long term anyway. Oh, he'll learn the old toys' NEW name, for about a week,:rolleyes: and then POOF! O_o he can't remember the new name of his old toy anymore after that, without ongoing lessons all the time, all the time.

    but NEW TOYS, EASY CHEESY,:D-------- instantly and forever after my dog knows that toys name.:)
