  1. Weaving between legs (Elizabeth and Beckett will hate this one, lol)

    Backing up

    Putting back feet on something

    Targeting an object with shoulders or hips

    Crawling

    Discriminations- colors, shapes, objects, etc.

  2. A few more ideas:

    Marching in place
    Counting/Math (like Clever Hans)

  3. Someone just needs to train me to use stilts, and then watch out on the leg weave.

    I also was thinking of balancing dog treat on nose then tossing it the air and catching it. I love useless tricks.

  4. hmm, here are some things I’ve been occasionally working on or have been planning to start:

    limping
    penguin- move forward in the beg position
    holding an object in their front paws
    back stall
    chest vault
    jump through arms
    handstand

    or if we do really simple tricks I need some motivation to work on the ferrets and cat.

  5. ooh something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile is to shape something using another cue as the reinforcer.

    Ex: if you want the dog to put 2 feet on a box…
    dog paws box-you cue sit-dog sits-click/treat.

  6. side passes, in heel position and right side.

    rollover between your legs as you step over them.

    jumping in the air, not just standing on hind legs.

  7. I also want to do the 8 heel work to music positions.
