I wanted to teach this trick, because it is used in frisbee and dogdance a lot. I tried different ways to get her to actually jump. She would just jump up at me, keeping her hindlegs on the ground. A friend of mine, who is really good at frisbee, told me to sit on a chair and have her jump on my lap, so I tried that. But again, she wouldn't use her hindlegs, or she would climb on me. Tried it on the couch, because she knows how to jump up on the couch, but she wouldn't jump on me, but next to me... Then i saw a tutorial in which the person would lean against the wall with bent legs and ask the dog to jump up at her. That didn't work for us. But then I realized what was the problem!! I asked Jinx to jump right at me. She wouldn't do that. But when I asked her to jump a little to my right(as if she were to jump over my leg) she would do that! So I tried catching her and suddenly it all came together! Now she is jumping much better and she is even using her hind legs to on my leg for grip. Whoehoeee!! Now she is using her legs on me, I can eventually go on teaching her a bodybounce. But for now we need to perfect the jump in my arms.
