    Rocket and I are working on:

    turning and backing through my legs
    I am trying to get a distance back up but it's going slowly... I haven't been successful in finding clear help for this?... he does a very good back but conveying to him that I want him just to keep going on his own is somehow eluding me!
    say your prayers
    rear end awareness on a book -we just started this

    trying to touch on a lot of gen. behaviors we'll need to get through a draft test in June, we need a lot of time :unsure:
    so... stay, walking close, attention, recall, left and right turns, helping put on the harness, distractions with all of the above and then... soon...drumroll.... the cart. We'll see!

    It often helps to let your dog to back-up on a object (towel/small crate etc.) so that he knows that he has to keep backing-up untill he gets on the object. Maybe this works for Rocket (love the name)?

    Zsu-Zsu just mastered the figure 8 between my legs.
    She is working on standing on hind legs while walking forward, she does it ( few steps) but then starts jumping.
    I am also working on hand signal for her to stop barking. So cute when she gets the signal she actually barks softly , lol
    Love this thread, interesting to see what everyone is working on, thanks.

    I have a spacifer yeaaah!

    We did two sessions today, and at the end she would hold it for a few seconds without chewing, liking or throwing it out of her mouth (when holding something, or bringing something back she likes to chew on it). When she does this on a regular basis I slowly want to add the "hold it" command.
    Connecting the name "spacifer" to the spacifer will come afther this. Since I want her to hold other items aswell and I would like her to be able to grabb the spacifer herself.

    ooh I'm so proud off Dazzle. Tried one more session and she held the spacifer even longer then I would have thought and she even hold it while I asked her to lay down when she was sitting. Had to try it out. This goes well today!

    Great idea. That gives the dog clearcut parameters as to when to stop.

    Fabulous work!!!!!!!!:D(y) Maybe you could use a target stick to help with the back between your legs, it would give you more 'space/distance'. Loved the way Diesel sat like a big, beautiful statue, he's doing so well on remaining quietly in the background:love:
