    I was watching this video on youtube today, and fell in love with the trick at 2:30 but I can't find any videos or tutorials on how to train it. I was wondering if any of you know where I can find a video or could tell me how to teach it?

    Oh, I love Chase!!!!:D
    Maybe you should start with a cane or stick??? Maybe that would be easier....
    TifLovesBCs posted a video somewhere....

    thats given me a great idea, maybe if i add a cue hug when she does it on the cane then work on other objects and my leg that will work. hmmmmmm.

    ok i've done some more training with the cane of this and added the cue and filmed it, uploading the video so will share it shortly.

    Bella is amazingly smart! I'm jealous of how lucky you are to have such a talented dog!

    I actually squealed (scared Remi might I add lol) when I saw this video! That is by far the cutest thing I have ever seen a dog do.

    How long does it take for her to catch on to a new trick?

    She tends to be really quick, usually in a week she gets it but usually sooner, some take longer.

    I can't wait to get started on teaching this trick!!!
    Now. does everyone think i should start with the stick, or similar item,
    and then, add in cue word,
    and then, transfer that cue to my leg? Is that right?

    Any ideas on cute cue for this? I was thinking of stuff like,
    "Buddy, are you scared?" or afraid, etc.
    "Buddy, am i your favorite?"
    or what would be funny, that a dog would hug the human's leg when asked some words?

    "Buddy, you want to go to dog pound?" dog hugs leg.

    i just use last word as the cue, like "scared" or "favorite" so Buddy waits til he hears last word to do the trick.

    I'm starting with a stick, I find that its easier for him to interacted with it. I like the "Buddy, you want to go to the dog pound?" cue. I might use pound as the cue either that or I was thinking of using afraid as the cue.

    @tigerlily I think try using the stick and put a cue to it... then slowly move it closer to you leg until it touches. Maybe something like that would work.
