I've wanted to teach my pups some new tricks and thought it would be fun to do a 30 day challenge to see how many tricks we can learn in 30 days. Anyone want to join me in the fun with their dogs? Any ideas on how to make this more fun? I'm open to any feedback.

I'm interested! We're away for 6 days (I hope; camping is still shut) - some stuff Agis knows but needs serious proofing since I have not kept up since our tricks class - and I want to take Tricks II in the fall!

That's great Jenn!!!! Let me put some thought into this....how about if we come up with some lists of tricks we'd like to learn. I'll be working with Sashi since Kody is not too fond of learning (but that could always change), but here's some things I want to teach her:

Beg
Crawl (better than she does now)
Toy Idenfication

How's Agis with the Leave It command? Can you put a treat in front of him and he'll leave it until you say OK? I can do that with my two but would like trying balancing the treat on their noses.

I want Sashi to get my slippers and bring them to me (that would be a great trick)

I'll have to look up more tricks on line that we can add to our list. What tricks are you thinking you'd like Agis to learn?

I also want Sashi to learn to say her prayers.

We should be able to have enough info to start Saturday!!! Does that sound good to you? AND if anyone wants to join us please jump right in. The more the better.

Crawl was one of the ones. I've done a list below - if it's too much, let me know! This will be fun.

Beg
Crawl
Toy Identification
Roll over (I suck at training this one)
Bring toys/slippers
Item identification
Leave it (Agis - proof)
Bow (Agis - proof)
Spin (Agis - proof)

(Agis knows leave it, but it's been hard to proof inside with food because Xerxes darts in trying to take it - I will have to work on this one with Agis alone)

Rosa, sounds like a fun challenge. I'd be interested if I wasn't knee-deep in kitchen cabinets. rofl2

Jenn - I trained Caleb to do rollover by holding a treat near his face as he laid on his side on the floor, and making him follow it around in a circle from left to right (or right to left) over his head. The body tends to follow along if you get just the right distance between the treat and his head.

Thanks Johanna! That's a good tip. We did the start of it in class but I never really followed through (terrible I know) so now I think we're back at square one. I will try that!

I tried watching YouTube videos and that was disasterous!

Here's our list so far (feel free to add)

Beg
Rollover
Crawl
Kiss
Spin
Catch a treat in the mouth
Toy Identification
Bring Toys/Slipper
Say Your Prayers

I'm thinking we can work off the list, choose a trick and keep everyone updated as you master the trick. How about if we start Saturday (tomorrow)? Any other idea's on doing this is welcomed. Good luck!!!! I think it's going to be fun.

Feel free to jump in and jump out anytime you want. I'd love to see Caleb and Ciara having fun with us. I can hardly wait to see those cabinets.

I just started Agis on beg! Perhaps I'll do crawl a bit later. Agis learned a bit of it but wasn't doing it on his own yet.

Yes, we can start anywhere and learn anything. I want to do Beg too, but Sashi is learning crawl so I'll begin with that. There are no rules, it's all in fun!!

I want to add Play Dead to the list!!!

Day One. Sashi would like to know why she can't just leap forward and grab the treat instead of crawling...It's so much faster her way rofl2 So back to YouTube I went crazy

Tried again. This time Kody got involved. No biggie, I'll teach them both. That never works but I did get Kody to crawl better than Sashi. Back to YouTube thinking

Oh yes, the joys of multiple dogs.

Agis is crawling through my leg tunnel well (with a treat), and we're slowly getting beg.

I just about finished my chores so I'll be jumping on that training wagon.

Agis is doing great if he can crawl through your leg tunnel cheers

Thanks Rosa! We haven't done a thing today. It's around 35C with humidity and all me and the dogs have done is sleep on the couch all day long - I just took them out and even Agis didn't want to play. Toby'll have to install the AC when he gets home because we're just starting this heat wave. I did bring out a floor fan from the bedroom (we have a ceiling fan there) and that's making it a lot nicer!

Well, actually, strictly speaking that's not true, our building has a farmer's market and I went out a 9am to pick up some things - bit disappointed with the produce selection - I ended up with first crop strawberries and some asparagus. Some sourdough bread and some beer and cider (I would've rathered better vegetable selections).

That's ok! Maybe we can skip today. I've been swamped all day. I spent the day going through most of the property and pulling weeds and trimming trees. I might try soon with Sashi but I don't want Kody feeling left out, so I doubt I'll get any real training done.

I'm moving on to Beg next....crawling is hard

Whoo hooo~ This sounds fun!

Gypsy is so food motivated that she is almost (who am I kidding...she is TOO eager) to try tricks.

We have worked on some of the ones listed before so it will be great fun to join in!

Are we going to post videos of our pups doing their tricks?

party Gypsy and Bev are joining in the fun. It's simple, pick a trick, or add your own and begin training. Videos and pictures are always welcomed and would add to the fun.

I'd love to add Play Dead and Wave to the list
