    I love Squash, he's such a cutie! It shouldn't be too hard to get duration, it looks like he knows what you're asking for.

    I'm still totally luring this. Pan had trouble at first, convinced that her long skinny noodle body couldn't stay upright, lol.

    We've already done quite a bit of agility tonight, so she was pretty pooped here. :D

    Tried a little into to training this tonight... schnauzers are out due to knee and leg issues. Switched to Kiba ringing a bell and Stryder standing with his front paws on some boxes. Charlie.. *sigh*... We did some target, eye contact, and learning how to jump into my lap work.

    Poodles are picking up on it quite quickly.. Tsuki can hold the position, I'm just trying to decide what to use as a hand signal and then will work on fading away the lure.. also if i want her to just "sit pretty" or also wave. Lincoln is also getting the position fairly quickly... I also may be using "Squirrel" as a command word.. lol

    I wasnt expecting Bandit to even humor me and for this to take more work for him not to shut down and default to a lay down and not budge but he actually took to this trick with a lot of gusto. Im getting more of a jump right off the ground but hey, anything is good that isnt a lie down for my dog.

    Any upward motion was good motion for round one

    Everyone's look great - Artemis is especially impressive.

    I can't upload videos from photobooth for some reason, and my phone is shot, so idk how I'll get my videos up here - if we actually make any progress.

    Another rainy morning. Squash is huffing at me because his previous 1-second long efforts were not rewarded. :p I do very much like how he's clearly making an effort to stay up longer instead of just "up-and-down," so I think he's started to catch on.

    Maisy's getting the hang of it. She gets so excited. The one at the end was the first time that she didn't put her paws on me, which I've been fine with so far because the butt-on-the-floor issue has been more important to me.

    And man, I need to dig out a clicker. I sound like a budgie screaming at itself in the mirror, and sloppy marking.

    I apparently had nothing to worry about re:long backed dogs and this trick. Murphy and Tipper can do it and can hold themselves up. Video is taking forever to upload though.

    I tried one 15-20 minute session with Zander last night. He did not understand this concept of keeping his butt on the ground but front feet off the ground.

    He offered shake. Shake other paw. Sit. Stand. Stand up. Bow. Lots of yelling.

    But this concept eludes him, as well as the cheese. :rofl1: Ended in a very loud one-sided screaming match.

    Yeah, Milo's really unsure about the butt-on-the-ground-thing, too. There was A LOT of jumping and standing on hind legs happening in my house this morning.

    Attemp 2... getting better?

    We havent trained at all in so long I find myself overclicking beause I want him pumped to try any sort of movement. Towards the end he got it.

    Bandit is so cute and good! I love his little hop.

    Squash just makes me laugh. His sit pretty is so super enthusiastic just like everything else about him with the high up legs

    I love watching all these!

    I was just thinking despite being on this forum for forever no one has really seen much of Bandit in action. He has that loyal to a fault, Im gonna try my hardest mom! attitude. So cute.

    This was Rosey, pretty much. Except it ends in a two-sided screaming match.

    Here's the first and last part of the two shaping sessions we've done (just to kinda show the process)

    First I just clicked for sitting, then for front foot movement of any sort (including shifting of the weight) and then for her foot going higher and then for two feet off the ground. All together this was probably 6 minutes of training.

    Also, sorry for not turning off the music on my computer, forgot I had it playing through that and spaced it.

    Okay, after much fighting with the YouTube mobile site.

    Here's Tipper (sorry for the sniffling I just came inside and its really cold today).

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/jfMIfvdrtqU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    And here's Murph. In this one I'm sorry for the yelling. Lol.

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Ts4upJxIyDA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    ETA: Murphy kept biting my hand. And I'm luring instead of shaping because I don't want Tipper to spend the entire time barking at me, and I don't want Murphy to scratch me. Lol.
