    Lily has a certain spot she LOVES being scratched right on her belly, well I went to scratch it today and she started lifting her leg so that I could get "better access" to the sacred spot. Anyway, I started laughing because she looked like a boy dog about to pee and she got SO excited. So now everytime I go to scratch her spot she lifts her leg up. I don't know if this is something that I want to keep going or not though, should I do the click and treat when she does that or is this something that she shouldn't be doing? It's just SO funny though.

    Why not click and treat? It would be a funny behavior especially with the right command. You could make it political for example by using your least favorite political party and and then say, "What do you think of the Republicans (for example)" at which point she lifts her leg.

    You could make it about anything.

    I had a friend who's dog would play dead on the command "dead dog". He could fill in anyone's proffession and say '"what would you rather be a lawyer (for example) or a dead dog?" at which point the dog would play dead. Very entertaining.

    i think it's totally funny. you could click and treat it and once it's solid, attach a funny cue, for example "how do the boys do it, lily?"

    it would be hilarious!
