So, finals are next week and I won't have class again until next semester in mid-January. Today was my last day at my full-time job after 3 years, and I'll be starting a part-time job very soon that will leave me lots of free time. I'll be able to get my studying in and have time for my dogs again like I used to. So where should I pick back up again? I have had very, very little time for any new tricks. I've done some shaping just to keep them occupied, but really no one has learned new tricks since......gosh I don't even know how long. Except for Gypsy, who has learned weave, stay, and come. Well, and Z learned BOING! a few months ago. Gypsy is pretty much a completely empty mind; the only tricks she knows are spin/turn, sit, and weave. She's learning down and stand. She does know stay and come; we are advancing those cues. Her recall is incredibly important; she is going to be trained for shed hunting and blood trailing. A lot of her work will eventually be off-leash so I'm putting a ton of emphasis on her recall. Not sure where I want to start with her as far as tricks(aside from very basic ones which we will start soon) but I have already started testing her recall and stay with distractions. Z's recall needs improvement; he's incredibly high drive and when I still had a life I was working on improving his self-control and recall. He knows about 15-20 different tricks, but not sure where I want to go next with him. I would like to do some double-dog tricks with him and Gypsy. And Mud...she knows close to 100 tricks and I've kind of hit an inspiration dry spell; I have no clue what to teach her next. So I guess what I'm asking for is ideas. Where should I pick up with everyone?
