    Holly is doing very well with her skateboarding.

    The smaller skateboard is definitly easier for her.
    She can do a push off now, although the skateboard doesn't move very fast (it might with more practice) and she's starting to realise that I want her to stay on the board and not jump off the front of it to get the treat (it shoots off behind her when she does that and bangs into stuff - it amazes me that nothing like that ever scares her).

    I think a couple more days of practice in the kitchen and then we will take it outside to the park (we don't have concrete in our backyard).

    I really will have to remember to take pictures

    So cool. I always wanted to teach Legend this. He has a skateboard sitting on his crate that one of the kids in the neighborhood gave him. Just gotta start training it.

    I'm teaching Remi this trick. He loves the skateboard, and is go to trick if he sees me with treats. We're working on getting him to keep three paws on the board and kick off.

    The big skateboard was my brothers, but it is too big for Holly.

    Here's pictures of her with her new little skateboard, it fits her much better:

    AWW that's such a cute skate board for her!
    Hehe I stole my brother's he wouldn't let me use it so I had took it when he wasn't home.:sneaky: He won't notice cause he doesn't use it.:cautious: Missy is getting use to putting three feet on the board(she keeps trying to avoid putting her back foot on it).
    Everyone post video's when your dog learns it. a video of them learning it too would be cool.:D

    So Dogster found a skateboard and we decided to paint it. We are still not done because we will write on the blue bottom, with yellow paint Carmel and Shivon :). The color choice was really random, its the colors that dogs see the best. Camping 736.JPG Camping 738.JPG

    Yes, we used acrylic paint.:) We used spray paint for the base color (none of us had actually used spray paint before:cautious: ) sooo, it was fun.:D

    I'd go over it with modpodge or some clear coat spray paint to keep from getting scratched off.
