...the more frantic my dogs get when I pull out the clicker. What is the best way to try to get them to still be interested but at the same time to not be so spastic and all over everything and trying everything that comes to mind at warp speed? I just was training both of them (individually) and Summer was running from one object to another in the room, jumping on things, spinning, falling over, whatever comes to mind. The natural progression of their tricks is that way too. I taught them to spin in a circle long time ago, but there is no spinning with all 4 feet on the ground. It started that way but the more they got it, they gradually ended up spinning on their back legs then eventually Summer started jumping and spinning at the same time. Just as an example of how they both tend to progress things. I LOVE their enthusiasm and I do love their speed. Sometimes though, it is hard to teach a behavior just because they are everywhere at once. I don't want to crush their joy of shaping though.
