    Here's a new trick Bamm is learning... "hit the lights".... he does it better off camera when he's not focusing on the camera in my hand... but it's still a trick we're working on so sorry if it looks a little unorganized...

    Also... please pay no attention to the mess in my apartment... we're getting ready to move so we're packing.... also... I know Bamm's nails are long... he has to get them clipped at the vets since he's so weird about his feet being handled...

    LMAO that's awesome! I thought about teaching that to Auggie but a) he's too short and b) I can just see myself sitting in a room and the lights randomly going on and off while the dog amuses himself by hitting the switch over and over...

    Too cute! Very well done. Toker is very quick at learning tricks. But that one...I think she'd wind up scratching the hell out of the sheet rock. Maybe some kind of protective stuff around the light switch would help. Anyhow, very cute! And don't apologize for the mess OR Bamm's nails. Sometimes we just can't get to everything. And he isn't going to die from long nails because duh....it's not like you're an unconscienteous dog owner. Holy cow! Look at the dog. Does he look miserable? Oh yeah....you do use treats instead of a choke collar. Well, maybe he is miserable.:rofl1:
     
  4. God I love that trick! Its even cuter in person!!!

    Thats awesome! Our lightswitches wouldn't be able to be flicked by a dog. :( I love the "go to bed" though.

    I thought the same thing as Beanie, lol. Although I suspect Kharma would insist on a clapper (yapper???? I can see her now, making Tallulah yap to turn off the lights :rolleyes: )

    I'm impressed! I wonder if he will turn on the lights when it's morning!

    That's so cute! I wish Art was bigger, that would be an awesome new trick for him!

    Bamm is so adorable!
     
  10. That is so awesome! I need to teach that one to Tempie. Definitely not Raja. She'll scratch up my walls and flick my lights on and off every five seconds.

    Love that trick! Bamm did it fabulously. I've been trying to figure out a way to get Jackson to do it, even though he's so small, lol. We have this big recliner chair near our light switch that I was trying to get him to do it from, haha. Go Bamm!

    haha thank you so much everyone... once I get him to the point where I can send him from one end of the room to the other to turn off the lights I'll totally video tape it. He's so much fun to train even if at times he decides he feels like being a bonehead and ignores me... he straight up ignored cheese when I was trying to video tape this one because he saw the camera in my hand and didn't want the camera there... took me quite a few tapes and a lot of cursing under my breath to get that short video HAHAHA!!!! He's such a silly little brat, but man is he ever smart.

    I wish my dog could do that - my kids would love that (they're too lazy to get out of the bed to do that themselves).
