i started teaching with lure and as soon as her feet left the floor clicked and treated
Oh geesh. She's not so into it..baha. I'll keep trying though.
I held my dog from front,
holding his paws,
then faded it to light touch only on his paws,
and later, also had him balance with his front paws on a stick,
and then, faded out stick, so he could at least memorize what position was wanted. even though he could not yet balance for very very long.
I don't think my dog lack of balance when in a beg indicates he isn't thinking, i think he is just a klutz when he sits up without using his front legs for balance. Take one of my limbs away, i don't stand so great either for very very long.
This is sure not my dog's best trick, nope! rofl.
but, his lack of "greatness" in begging, doesn't hold him back at rocking at other tricks. not at all.
My dog is not especially great at some tricks, yet, other tricks, i think he is #1.
You might find your dog is just super at other tricks, too, and realize, "wow, my dog really IS thinking! he really DOES get it!"
What is a "cross over" dog?
It took a while for my dog to get this trick. at first she couldnt even beg for a second but after a lot of practise she started being able to hold herself in beg position. kricket.. click the second two feet go up.
It is a dog that was trained originally using traditional manipulation methods and is now learning by clicker...some dogs take a long time to get that they don't have to wait to be told what to do but can just offer behaviors and get rewards...
