    Finally got Missy to back onto the wall, but with my help. Anyone have ideas how to build up her upper body(front legs) other than working on her handstand everyday?

    Paige is adorable! And very talented!

    Valentine and I are working on the handstand right now. This is the video I made for it a little while ago. She's a bit higher than this now, but she still has a ways to go.

    Valentine is doing great.
    Yesterday Missy did a handstand on her own(no wall or help from me). It was only for a second or so, but I was so proud and gave her lots of treats.

    I started teaching her this in September, but I did take a break from it so I've been teaching her for about 3 months. It is a hard trick because I started teaching her to back onto stacked books, than a mushroom chair, than my dresser(she couldn't use the wall at first because it was too slick), wall and now she is learning without any props. At first with the dresser I had to help her and same when we went to the wall. Now she has to build up her strength so she can do it on her own. Right now she is only able to get fully up every once in a while.

    It does take a lot off time to build up those musscles. Good job though!!!

    Here is a video on a training session of the handstand. She didn't do a full one this time.

    Yeah she's trying to get her legs up. Every once in a while I'll help her get all the way up and treat her to remind her what our goal is.

    The first time we practices, Fly hurt her back. So I left this trick aside. After a while, she decided that trees were good support.
