Having said on another thread that I just cannot seem to capture tricks, I think I may just have captured one. Anyone who's read about Ra Kismet would know he's soccer mad, trying to get him to leave his soccer ball almost requires major surgery at times Today was no exception. Took forever for him to finally 'come and leave'. I end up standing patiently waiting for him, no use pushing the matter, 'comes' fall on deaf ears Must be the mud When he did though he came with soccer ball, sat - leaving soccer ball right in front of him. And when click/treated and told Good Boy - placed his paw on his soccer ball - like players do at times to pose for photos but was still looking up at ME, not the ball as he usually does, just waiting to take off again with it. I quickly click/treated and said 'paw on ball', as it was so cute. I repeated this cue and click/treat quite a few times and each time he placed his paw on the soccer ball, only needing a slight hint once or twice. Wearing an expression which said 'finally I've taught Mom a trick YEAH' Have I actually managed to capture a trick?
