    LOL - I love Mia so much. That's adorable.

    Here is Jackson and I today working on frisbee again. I'm happy with the progress! For only being about a week since our last session. I had just gotten out of the pool, so again, I'm a mess. haha. This video is shorter. His better catches are towards the middle/end.

    Kastle's leg weaving has come a long way - he's matured so much the last couple of months! He used to bark and air snap and muzzle punch my hands.

    Awwww Mia so cute! I love the hide trick - she seems to be a huge fan as well :p

    Jackson seems to be getting the hang of the frisbee! You have a lot more patience than I do. I gave up on any hope of my dogs being able to catch one hahaha.

    Kastle looks great!!! He does them really fast.

    I really like the second one, thanks! :)

    Here is Arnold working on stepping back. I rarely train with him anymore and I forget have fun he is and how quickly he catches on.

    I love Arnold! He's so super handsome, and smart too.

    He's doing great. I realized a few days ago that Jackson has absolutely NO rear end awareness. Ha, he just cannot figure out that I want him to back up ON to something. He does great with backing up, doing backwards circles around my legs, AND doing a "reverse and turn" but he cannot figure out how in the world to use his back legs to back up onto a couch cushion LOL... so handstand is going to go VERY slowly.

    LOL Yeah... it's been a challenge getting Sloan and Backup to step back (I can't call it Back up in my house :p ). I don't plan to take any of them to a full hand stand but I am having fun working on backing up a wall.

    Awwww I don't think I've ever seen video of Arnold! He looks like he really loves to train and catches on so fast :)

    Here's our first try outside. Luckily I had this random fence panel to work with LOL. We're ALMOST vertical inside on the grooming table, but I lowered it to work her in the yard. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to make it straighter outside :)

    Now I'm trying to figure out a fun, short freestyle routine for our National Specialty... But I'm apparently not a good choreographer LOL. Anyone have any freestyle vids/tips/ideas?

    Kimma knows - heel with turns and such, she can back up pretty well in heel right now (we're working more on it), she can back up while facing me (not for too long a distance yet), jump over my legs while I'm kneeling, spin both ways, go around me, stand on her hinds and spin, retrieve objects, weave through my legs while walking and stationary, her bow and wave are rusty but I could potentially get them back up if need be, play dead, roll over. I think that's what I could use in a routine...

    We've got weaves! (well 6 anyway...)

    And Limit is now offering the handstand without a straight up lure (I don't free shape, no patience LOL)

    This is fantastic! What a smart girly and I love the attitude thrown at you with those little barks. :p

    I have freestyle book I snagged from a book sale a few months ago, the tricks are fun and I think they have sequences in the back full with costumes and all. I'll check it for you and maybe scan some of them after I tackle my kitchen (It's my first real day off in weeks).

    We officially have leg weaves going forward and backward! Don't mind the scrubs, this was taking during my lunch break.

    That is SO impressive! I love it!

    I can barely walk backwards by myself, not sure I can teach backward weaving LOL :rofl1:

    Very, very cool! Backup has great leg weaving but I, too, fear backwards weaving but mostly because I think he'll take out my knees. LOL

    I love Zuma. :)

    I also have a brief video of Cohen's handstand training from a year or so ago.

    Unfortunately we've not progressed much further beyond that. I've not been able to add much duration, and I'm not entirely sure how I should do that. The behaviour is also much cleaner when I'm sitting on the floor, so I should focus more on getting a handstand while I'm standing. But to me, that's secondary to adding duration.

    I would just keep delaying the click.

    Awesome backward weaving!

    That looks FABULOUS!

    WOAH! On both counts! I don't think Kimma will ever be able to do the handstand without a wall behind her. I'm OK with that though LOL.

    UGH so jealous of both of your backwards weaving skills!!!

    Oh she's got attitude to spare LOL.

    OMG that would be amazing!!! I don't need costumes or anything like that (I don't think Kimma will let me put anything on her anyway LOL), but sequences would be fantastic if you have any time to scan :)

    We are on day 3 of foot stall training. Waiting for a bit more balance before I attempt a normal stall.

    Awesome foot stall! How could you go about training this by yourself? I can't see any one laying on the floor for me like that, hehe
