    Tipper is so keen! Murphy can hold the position really well - he must be pretty strong.

    Love Zinga - this may seem an odd thing to say, but I'm amazed at how flexible and bendy she is! That was really nice to watch.

    I loved watching Kimma and Pentti's progression. :)

    I will catch up with some more of these vids tomorrow and my video camera is on charge so we will see how Abby and I fare tomorrow!

    I think Frodo is having the sore core issue as well. He's like "Look, I know what you want me to do, but this is easier and doesn't hurt!" lol
    So we've been taking it easy and just throwing in one or two reps in the middle of a bunch of other easy stuff that doesn't use core strength. Also why we haven't had any more videos.

    He's definitely catching on better though!

    What day of the week are we calling the "end" and posting final videos?

    That's something to be aware of. With any of the physically difficult tricks, be sure to keep sessions short. If your dogs seems unwilling or less eager to continue with the trick, don't push them. Building up strength slowly is important.

    I think on Friday I will post the next trick and that will be the last day to submit videos for the current trick.

    As far as the next trick goes, is everyone ok with spin? This can be done bidirectional, or you can just work on one direction. Lure or free shape. It's another great one for conditioning and stretching, a great warm up for physical activities.

    Spin sounds great for the next trick.

    I procrastinated so hard with this week and now both dogs are vomiting and don't feel like training :( I might have to clicker train the cat.

    Spin is a great idea - we have one direction going ok, but I can start working on the other direction. I better get a move on with sit pretty lol! I'm annoyed I came in so late! ;) House-sitting with no net!

    Ok, Juno's beg is adorable and she's doing it so good!

    Here's Didgie today. Mainly I just wanted to get her outside and doing it around distraction.

    Haha, thanks! :)

    I wanted to do another session last night, but didn't because I didn't want to make them too sore. And this morning we had our weekly private lesson, so hopefully can get some video tonight when I go home to eat dinner!

    Totally down for doing spin for the next one! Thats something we haven't done at all yet, so should be fun. :D

    I'm down for spin! Zander has one direction pretty solid, but the other we have issues with.

    Didgie and Zinga make me want a K/Coolie. So. Bad. The work ethic!

    Ok, sessions 1 and 2. I decided to go with targeting. My target stick is huge lol - I never got around to making or getting a smaller one.
    I'm very happy with Abby's targeting but not so happy with my positioning of the target!

    Sorry about the cutting off of her cute little head in the second video.

    Edit - Ok, all fixed now. We had a lot of fun this morning. Will see how we go again this afternoon.
