    Miss Maisy is adorable. I love how her tail just never. stops.

    I thought about teaching Pepper to skateboard but she might actually have a total meltdown the first time it moved...

    Dex and I had a skateboarding party last night.

    First up was Dodger!! This is my favorite video of all time and pretty much sums up Dodger. The end is the best, when he mauls my phone.

    Next up is Codex, with a guest appearance by Dodger! Codex nailed this trick.

    Last but not least, Zinga! I dabbled with this when she was a puppy, glad to see she remembers most of it. Trying to shoot for getting that third leg up there though.

    They all look great! It's cute to see their styles each being a bit different.

    That elusive third leg is very hard for most dogs, I think. Sloan nailed it a few times last night but nothing consistent. Both of my dogs will push for a long distance with the front paws, I need to tweak something for the third plus a kick. I'm thinking about shaping a kick off the board, setting them up, and then cueing the kick.

    Ya, I'm with you on that one. Click for all four on and then shape that kick. When I have time, I'll give it a try.

    Oh, they all look so good. I love Dodger.

    There is no hope for Squash with 3 on the board but I may see if he will push with 2 on and 2 off. Maisy will stand with 3 on the board but so far just buried in mulch, immobile. I'm not sure what she will do when it starts moving.

    I don't know how Lo can be so ridiculously cute and look so serious at the same time. I think she looks amazing. :)


    I love this dog. The first couple of times it moved was a happy accident. Then he dug it. Just have to work on distance. Honestly I'm happy with one or two paws on the board, given his size.

    Lo is awesome!!

    Holy crap Squash makes me laugh. I love how he kept just putting a paw out and is like *slide skateboard over.* Hysterical.

    I got on Payton's yesterday, decided I liked not having my neck broken, and got back off LOL. It has been a looooong time.

    I love, love, love the videos!!! It's very awesome to see different size dogs.

    I definitely can not skateboard myself!

    Here's Crossbone tonight after a session on thick carpet first, then thinner carpet and finally hardwood floor. We need more space!!! (We had a couple sessions before this of actually getting on and standing on the board with 3 feet -- this was the first time we've had movement).

    So I finally caved and bought a skateboard today. Not too too bad for her first time, but we ran into a few problems that I think are going to plague us with this trick. Mostly, I'm having a hard time convincing her not to just jump on the skateboard and sit and grumble at me. She did start to get the idea a little bit.
