'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Tricky T-Day: Leapfrog.

This trick didn't quite work out as I'd had in mind - the dogs each taking a turn to 'leapfrog' over each other. Mainly, because Lola wouldn't stay in a down whilst Jess stood over her, and Jess had to practically be pushed to move over Ro. So it's just narrowed down to Lola jumping over Jess. The video also includes Lola woofing on command. :)

Love this trick! I taught this to Misty and Oreo, and they had so much fun with it. Keeping them in the down is the hardest part.

Super cute!!! This is one of my favorite double dog tricks! And Lola and Jess do it well!

Jess is difficult to keep in a down/stay - she just wants to creep closer to me on the off-chance she'll get a treat! I have some other plans for double dog tricks that will let Jess be more active, though :)
