I feel this Trick Challenge is is not so much training a trick as training a new method of training... To begin all you need is three voice cues that your dog knows really well and you are sure it is not taking any body cues from you. And you need to be able to mime these cues. You will need a further 3 familiar cues that you can mime for the next stage of training. The following video shows how to begin training "Do as I do" You can also read a written description of the first stage of training HERE, I found this article useful to understand the process. If you find better descriptions and videos of training please do share them on this thread! I'm not sure how long this challenge will take to train so lets check in in a week (30th June) When we get to video/s submission it/they should include: 1. Your dog demonstrating the 3 cues you have chosen. 2. Part of your first training session and it would be great if you can show a developing understanding in your dog. 3. Your dog demonstrating the 3 next cues you have chosen. 4. Part of your first training session with these 3 cues and it would be great if you can show a developing understanding in your dog. 5. Generalising to miming actions that are unfamiliar to the dog and how the dog gets on with this. If you know you won't be able to submit a video for whatever reason do please still train along with us... the more of us join in the more fun it is and the more we can learn from each other and our dogs. Any questions/suggestions/ideas/hints about this challenge please post them in this thread, ideas for other challenges please post them in "Who Is Interested In A Trick Challenge".
