    I love the first one but had a hard time finding it on YouTube since I first watched it! Thanks for posting it so I can find it again.

    Pami now knows this trick!!
    And she can do it without any support! :D
    I'm really proud about it. It took us half a year to learn it... :D

    We loved the video! Thank you for posting such a cool video of your amazing dogs. Wow, Cas really is so enthusiastic about learning, isn't she? It is amazing the difference from when you got her and she was scared, to now...a happy and super confident looking beauty.

    Been training Milo to do this for the past few days and have managed to reliably get on box and put front legs on ground but have been stuck trying to get him to back up to it. So just reading through posts have realised I need to try something lower so starting again with a telephone directory or something similar. Will report back!

    we started this with mattress simply on the floor (it's high about 8-10cm) and first i lured him to get his back on the mattress and i was gradually putting boxes and stuff under the mattress and now it's nearly straight and he's able to get his butt up ... as long as i know, when dog gets it and does it automatically you should click a second before he touches the box/mattress/ or whatever you use, so you click for actual standing on his front legs... but i guess it takes precise timing w/ clicker... we're not that far yer :)

    @ginauk84 I'm really keen on the good job you're doing with your border collie. She really behaves like mine, so funny. And thanks for sharing the trick, it will be useful to me as we have not worked on that yet as I wanted my dog to be old enough to give it a try.

    Great instructional video!

    My girl is currently working on improving her core/strength but we are about 1/2 a way up the wall. We used a method very similar to yours. Works like a charm!

    We are having a go with Fly. She's playing the game but I'm not sure she loves that trick. Anyway, she's trying and we are making progress.

    This is pretty amazing! I seen a few videos of dogs doing a handstand and even one how to teach it, I like yours quite a bit! I will have to start lower with Cody, bad rear end awareness, but I am will certainly give it a shot! By the way your BC is adorable, I love how excited she is! Such joy.
  19. fly30 Experienced Member

    Thank you Paradismutts. What you can do is to teach Cody to walk backward on a flat floor, then "back up" on something like a stair or event a book. If he does not backup straight, put some chairs or any obstacle on each side and carry on. Once he got it, then teach him to back up on two or three stairs so that he gets used to climb a few steps back. Then put books against a wall and there we go. When he can back up on them, add books gradually. That's where we stand for the moment.
    Once Fly has it, I will ask her to back up on the wall.

    Thank you for the advice! I will probably try that first, since he does back up (he does it on his own when excited) but never straight. He always goes rather sideways, but I will use your tip with the chairs so he is becomes aware of his back end. Thank you again.
