    I'm starting the shopping cart trick with Shivon!!!!:D She only does it from a sitting position, but we're working on it!!!! This was her first session:

    If anyone has any ideas as to how to teach this from a standing position, or brags, or anything:p feel free to post!!!!

    hmmm have you tried from a stand then paws up maybe rather than a sit then paws up.
    I wanna try this but i need to find a trolley

    just looked and there are soo many different ones out there for sale

    I'm trying from a standing position but she just doesn't want to do it. I have been trying to get her used to paws up on my arm from a standing position before I move to the shopping cart. Would this work????:)

    maybe also try against walls. like on my trick video where i did it with Bella, it was a test to see if she would and she did so it might work.

    I had access to a shopping cart for a few hours when I took Sundog to a Pet Expo. The key was that the shopping cart was sized appropriately and she learned it very quickly. I think your shopping cart might be too small and Shivon might not be comfortable standing with her paws on it?

    Oh, I forgot to mention that you might want to try it on carpet? If it rolls a bit less easily, Shivon will feel more control. She'll be able to get a better feel for the standing position. I'm glad to see a weight in there. Otherwise, she might flip it. Sundog almost flipped the one that was sized closer to her a couple of times, but luckily I kept contact with it and prevented that.

    Regardless, she is cute as heck sitting there.

    Thank you for the advice!!!!! That is a temporary shopping cart. I'm trying to find a better one.:D I think I'm gonna start with a poll (pool noodle:p) then move it, then move on to the shopping cart (she is reluctant to put her paws on it from a standing position)

    I think her just sitting there with her paws on the cart is pretty impressive!!!! This is one cool trick!

    Okay, I FINALLY found a shopping cart that is perfect for Shivon.:D (And it was free!!!:)) It's about 90 cm tall, up to my waist.



    It doesn't look that great now, but we'll fix it up to lok as good as new!!:)

    That shopping cart is going to be far more stable than your previous one. She'll be pushing that in no time. It looks perfect!
