I've worked a bit with Ace as well, mostly on things that I had tried (and failed) to teach him when he was younger.
Its great for in the winter, when its too cold and snowy to go on many walks. I also find it a nice break from obedience and rally. We are able to work on different skills and body postures. I feel like the more we do, the more attentive Piper becomes, and ultimately the better obedience dog she becomes!
This year my goal is to teach Piper a bomb-proof "hold". Hopefully that will allow us to move easily from Novice to Open Obedience, when we are ready.
A few of Piper's favourites...
|Beg - one of Piper's favourite tricks to offer|
|Bow - another fun one. She can find this position from either a stand or a down.|
|Handstand - one of the most difficult we have learned so far. Another one she likes to offer!|
