    She's doing great! She is so adorable. I love how she stops now and then to try and eat your face. lol

    Zinga's head flip is just hysterical. I love that she threw that one day and just kept at it. So useful.

    She's so fun to watch work, such a funny girl! I love her.

    I might have to share a small portion of my attempt to shape it from a head turn. It was a joke and shamed me greatly. But I will say I kinda like it from a pivot! It works more hind end awareness and it's turning into almost a pure classic spin with Traveler just kinda leading with his butt :D

    Our first try at spin! I need to film myself training more often, it makes me realize how many missed opportunities I had where I could have clicked/treated :doh: So while Foxy will continue to work on spin I will work on upping my rate of reinforcement. And I'll use my actual camera to film training sessions instead of my phone balanced in a candle so hopefully Foxy will remain in frame for the majority of the video :rolleyes:

    So I think I'm going to steal whoever said Megan should teach the cue as herself spinning, and do that! Because it'll be awesome, and I need practice at changing cues, because EVERYTHING has a hand cue and NOTHING has a verbal (well, almost nothing) in this house!

    Wow, those all look really cool! I'm really impressed with the amount of patience everyone has training! lol

    Art knows spin (not ready for Talon to learn these yet), but I never taught him to spin in the opposite direction. So I guess we will try that :)

    So I was thinking, because some of us don't always get the whole trick completed in one week, I think every 4 or 6 weeks we should do little "progress reports" or something, where we video all of the tricks we've worked on since the beginning to show how far they have come since that week was over. Maybe?

    I think I'm going to try shaping this one... I tried shaping it with Auggie ages ago and it went horribly, and shaping with Auggie these days tends to be Auggie just standing in front of me barking (sigh.) We shall see what the puppies make of this one.

    Love it! Foxy is just adorable. She is so, so happy! :D I agree about filming - because I'm so in the moment, I have difficulty with timing, placement and all that important stuff. Seeing myself at least makes me a bit more aware.

    I love the idea of a spin from a pivot! Traveler is looking great.

    Juno has picked that up so fast!

    Mia had me in stitches. lmao

    Zinga is looking awesome. That video was really helpful because that's how I started to train it. Just not with such quick progress because I've only ever shaped with objects. I was also placing my reinforcement in the general direction of where I wanted the spin. This may take a while, I've got a couple of vids already, but I figure I'll wait a couple more days and maybe edit it into one to see the progression.

    I'd love to have an update thread because I'm keen to continue working on past tricks as well.

    Good idea! Maybe instead of a trick that week we could just do a refresher/updater on the existing tricks. I would go for once a month, so that would be every 4th trick. Otherwise, I feel like that if we keep doing one trick a week it will become overwhelming really fast, or we'll have a bunch of half trained tricks.

    Me, too, I definitely didn't finish the sit up to the degree that I would call it learned/trained. I think it's a great idea.

    Okay, I did a second session with Boone this morning, AND I figured out how to just take snippets from each of the sessions. So, here's where we are so far:

    Certainly not the fastest spin in the world, but he's getting it!

    Me too, my girls both know spin already so I'm still working on week 1 ;) But I would like to tweak spin some... faster, tighter spins.. stuff like that :)

    Awesome! Looking good! The hand signal is pretty easy to fade, it just takes a little time.

    I wonder if someone would have an idea of how to train a spin like this, but for dogs...
    <object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/SyNpp5MVSTA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/SyNpp5MVSTA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Maybe with a platform...**** platforms...

    I love Pip spinning himself into a sit and Maisy's tail going a mile a minute with a boing in her spin. And honestly, Squash could do nothing and I would still love him. He's just so....Squash.
