Hey go Sashi! We worked a bit on beg today but are being lazy - rybelsus (semiglutide) is giving me a stomach ache and nausea. Wah wah I should still be training more.

Most of our training is a few minutes here, a few minutes there, but several times throughout the day. I did get some more formal training done today. I'm amazing at just how much Sashi wants to learn. Sometimes she'll look at me like "I'm ready" but I just drawl a blank as to what to train her on next.

As you all know, Gypsy was a handful from day one, so training tricks was a way to burn off energy, especially the unwanted kind.

One thing she learned early on was to beg, or sit pretty.

Another one, which we are currently working on is Safe...when she is stressed out by meeting strangers, she is to sit between my feet. Training this has been a HooT!! That can be seen in a video I posted on our update thread.

We have done some Crawl. Some Roll over. Both are a work in progress. Seems she is so overly food motivated that I can easily wind up on the injured list hammer

She is an excellent catch, be it food or toys. I cannot get her to sit still long enough to set a treat on her nose and have her flip it up to catch it, so am going to try to work on that.

I too, would love to teach her Play Dead! Not sure how to go about that quite yet. LOL

Does she have a hand signal associated with "Down". Start by changing the hand signal slightly (e.g. add a rolling motion to the signal) and try and get her to down and roll onto her side. Once she's got that idea, change the hand signal to a "gun" pointing at her, verbal command of 'pow" and then quickly give her the down and roll on her side signal. Of curse, treat every time she gets close to what you want.

Here's a really challenging thing I've been working on with Caleb. He makes a noise that sounds like a "thrill/whistle". I don't know exactly how to describe the sound but I think somehow he blows through his nose when he makes the sound. So I've been working on getting him to "trill" on command. I do it when he's getting his chicken at meal times. I make the noise and wait until he makes something close to the trill sound he makes. When he does it, he gets his chicken. We're making progress, but he tries many other noises as well and I haven't moved to getting him to do it for anything but chicken so far.

That's right Bev, she has a great Sit Pretty. She was just shown in her winning pose on the calendar for April that Val does. goodjob

Join in anytime. I'm just using YouTube to learn things I don't know how to teach.

But so far Sashi is crawling more and learning Beg.

I've really slacked the last couple of days (read: done nothing). But, I just tried having Agis beg with hand signals and no treats and he did. For a SHORT time. He's got to work on holding it. Still, was happy with that. Will get back at it!

Toby came in and I was like 'Look what Agis can do!' (to show him beg without a treat).

I put Agis in a sit. Said, Agis, beg! and did the hand signal/shaping.

He lay down.

Toby was like, Yeah, good trick there.

With Zisso, he used to snap his teeth when he wanted the treat faster, so I added the command 'Whisper' to it, and before I knew it he would whisper on command. I doubt Gypsy will learn this one though, as she is either very quiet as she waits patiently, or she has a very demanding bark when she gets impatient. whistling

Zisso was such an amazing dog. Too cute that he learned how to whisper
wub

Sashi is crawling more and more but I still got to be right there on top of her so she doesn't get up. Still working on begging. I think I need to watch some videos on that one as I'm not really sure what I'm asking of her.

I've been so busy lately I haven't had a lot of time for training, but the last few days have gotten me back into the habit.

Sasha can crawl now. She's learning to 'Say her prayers'. We just started but I'm having her sit by the sofa and when she puts her paw up she's rewarded, so we have a ways to go. We're also working on her identifying my slippers and I can get her to 'touch' them. She's just such a fast learner.

Kody and I continue to work on our dance routine. He's also learning Bang, play dead and roll over.

Rosa, I want to see the dance routine where you shoot your partner and he plays dead. OK OK I know that's not what you meant but darn it would be fun to watch.


30 Day dog challenge with BTY2 is looking more like a 30 year challenge. On the other hand, BTE2 was wonderful before her back went out. My 30 day challenge for the horse is for me to get in the saddle twice in July (with the saddle on the horse's back...)

And then Rosa what's the 30 day challenge for birds?

Right now I'm thinking too darned hot for anything.

Gypsy is learning to Spin

It has been hot as can be here for an extended time so I am not doing a ton of training, but this helps work her brain, so it's a good thing!
