    Okay, I've registered yesterday and finally found time to introduce myself (my baby is asleep, shhhh!).
    I'm Olga from Poland. I have two dogs: an English cocker spaniel Sunday and a pyrenean shepherd Vigo. Both of them know lots of tricks already, but as we just looove new tricks, I hope to find some inspiration and motivation here :) We also do some agility and a little bit of backyard frisbee.

    "Some agility" means that Olga was the participant of the World Championship in Agility with Sunday a few times (2? 3?) :dogbiggrin:

    Welcome to the academy! Oh please, please, please post a picture of your current training item: lifting two diagonal legs!!! I would love to see this.:msnohyes:
  10. rauni New Member

    As soon as Vigo masters the trick, I would :) Meanwhile, you can see that and other cute tricks on Silvia Trkman's website (google it, as I can't post links)

    Yes, I've been to AWC with Sunday twice. But the real thing would be if I even qualify with Vigo :msnhugegrin:

    leg lift too

    I am working on that too. You may want to check out Daisy Peel's website too. She does some good work with this. She has some great variations on the trick.

    her website is jump start agility . com with no spaces. Look under her dogs and go to Solar's page. She has some videos of doing leg lifts.

    I just started working with my one year old GR Canon to do this. We are also working on skateboarding with 3 feet on and one to push.:dogcool:

    New member from Florida

    Hi! My name is Lindsey and I am the training director for the Tailwaggers Learning Center/Agility Club in West Palm Beach, Fl. We are a dog club with an all volunteer teaching staff offering classes in basic obedience and agility. You can see us at our site by googling Tailwaggers in Florida.
    One of my wire fox terriers is a therapy dog and she has learned some tricks. The people she visits get a big kick out of her on the skate board and playing the piano. I know she could so so much more and I am looking for more ideas. thanks

    Hello All from Maryna and Tyson
  15. menna New Member

    Hi all from the UK!
    I've just joined this site and am looking forward to taking part and training my pup - she's a six-month old Chinese Crested Powderpuff and is already starting to learn to dance, but I am wondering if she's maybe too young for the physical aspect of standing on her back legs! She's very bright (I used to own border collies, so I compare with them!)

    i have a miniature schnauzer and she loves to stand on her hind legs...
    for some dogs its very hard, but for others its very simple. Just see what your dog likes
