But far to lazy to search or carry it out. Has anyone ever wrote out a dog trick flow chart. By this I mean a natural progression of tricks that you build from the basic existing ones the dog already know. i.e. you have the basics -- sit, down, paw etc. but then you have the reverse circle -- based on turn around, backup etc. I think we get all excited about learning new big tricks and forget about the building blocks that are necessary before undertaking the more complex ones. Does that makes sense ?
