I Think We Need A Thread On What Everyone Is Working On!

Wylie is working on:
Rapporthund (delivering messages to members of the household) - Working on ignoring distractions and working well with food in the message bag.
Better, off leash recall - Coming along nicely

I'm taking it easy with Wylie's training at the moment as I am training my cousins dog Roxie.
Roxie is working on:
Loose leash walking- Perfect when there isn't any distractions
Leave it - Just started
Hold an object - just started

Kismet - Light/Dark (turn on/off light), Back, Go To Mat

Karma- Stand, Stand Stay, Hold It, Drop It, Back

(I go lighter on Kizzie's training as she gets stressed and frustrated much more easily)
I miss training. I haven't trained in 3 days due to moving and all of my supplies are packed.

Shiloh- Moonwalk, hold objects longer, balance a treat on her nose, limp, shell game

Bailey- Stay, Come, kennel, touch, and I'm teaching her to not jump on people.

Delilah- spin right, bow without a lure, paws up

Squats, Are you cold? pulls a blanket over herself. I'm trying to think of something else to teach her, but I'm at a loss.
Watch Me.

OMG! Another breakthrough.

Pretty crappy video, but you get the idea. It's very difficult to record yourself...

Evie is FINALLY balancing by herself with having to lean on my arm. It's awesome. We did this in like 2 minutes tonight because we were practising paw targetting.... so then i started to get her to target my hand in the air while sitting... and BAM! it works! :D

This is the first time Alf try to "wipe his paws". We still working on backcontroll and "spin" this time with a smaller book, and it doesnt look too good. But he is still learning...


Experienced Member
So an update of what we are working on:
Boef has mastered up, balance a treat on nose, read and the end.
Mazzel has mastered jipjip (=elephant/rear awarness), balance a treat on nose, read and the end.
Not really the things I started with (in my earlier post), but due to bad weather I choose for tricks that are more indoor). :)
Both are working on bubble at the moment

Missy is working on Back stall(very hard to teach by yourself and painful) and
walking calmly past dogs
Chase is
boundaries he gets in trouble cause he won't stay out of the kitchen when we're eating. My dad will kick him and smack:((not hard but it doesn't take much to hurt him.) he's such a love bug he wants to be were every one else is.


Honored Member
Okay, so I found a shopping cart (YAY!:)) and it's PERFECT for Shivon and Carmel. I'll post some pics on the shopping cart trick thread. So that trick is next on my list.:) Also, we're working on some agility stuff and rear end awareness (elephant trick)

Duke is currently working on Limp, Cop-Cop, and Spin. We also also working on his "Shame" (cover your eyes) being held for a bit longer.

Lin-Zee is working on the Elephant trick, and to bounce off of me. She is also learning how to "scoot" under things (from a "Down" moving backwards remaining down, backwards crawl basically).

Soon I think I am going to start double dog tricks with the two of them.

Athena continues to perfect her beauty :ROFLMAO:.

Missy is working on Handstand, focus, off-leash manners(Stop, Here, Slowdown) and focusing.

Chase is working on spin. He's still trying to figure out this trick thing.:giggle:

Tagalong my cat is learning to lie down.


Honored Member
Zeus is working on Peek a Boo, he's 'got' shake paws, over the moon my golden oldie is learning new tricks:D . Ra Kismet is working on crawl, we're almost there, just got to get him to not need a lure. He's also working on Cop Cop, still not moving his rear end well. Also I'm looking for something of a suitable height to start working on bow. Weave is coming on really well too, just got to get him now to work without a lure. His 'prayer' is now fabulous, no lure and holds for ages. Along with all his other tricks, so we just 'refresh' on those.


Experienced Member
We're finishing up limp on the off side, so that Sundog now has a limp on either side for the front. Once in a while, we work on targeting and stacking paws. We've been doing a lot of work with retrieving, picking up, carrying, putting in or putting on or putting down or giving. Sundog usually helps with the laundry every week. I have decided that I never need to pick up any small item that I've dropped ever again. :LOL:

Decided to video Lin-Zee's 2nd session with the elephant trick today. Considering this is only the second session, I'd say she's doing pretty well =). With her it is so hard to single out the behavior I want because she is SO pawsy, but she's a pretty smart cookie - and, if you couldn't already tell EXTREMELY food motivated

Also, I apologize that you are stuck looking at her butt for the majority of the video, but at least its freshly groomed and cute! :ROFLMAO:


Honored Member
Well done!!!(y):) Lin-Zee is doing really well, only her second sessions, she sure is one smart cookie. LOL she has a lovely but, so didn't mind looking at it, her wagging tail really caught my eye:)she is just so enthusiastic!
