tRicky T-Day!

The weather has been so nice here that we are just practicing agility and not training tricks much. We have worked on the lift back leg trick a little, and we run through most of the tricks I know about every other day. We also try them in new places - at the training building, at the park, etc. I guess when the weather gets bad (winter is coming all too soon), we'll have lots more time for tricks. We want to try to put a freestyle routine together too using Honey's advice, but we are definitely waiting for nasty weather to work on that!

However we were really inspired yet again by one of Kat's videos of Dazzle doing tricks! We have watched most of her videos - Kat and Dazzle are also an amazing agility team - and we thought we would share her latest with you all!

Isn't Dazzle awesome? One of our favorite tricks was Dazzle being a bad dog standing in the corner! So this week we started working on that - mom put a piece of painter's tape at my nose level in the corner and has been sending me there to nose touch it. I am a little manic about it and want to touch it as fast as possible or scratch at it with my foot, but we're just taking it slowly.

Hope you enjoyed Dazzle's tricks for a rainy day!

Gotta zoom!

Oh Dazzle is so inspiring! My human has shown me a couple of his videos before but we hadn't seen this one so thanks for sharing! That dishwasher trick is so very clever!

My human is always sad that there are some tricks she can't teach me coz of my size and my big chest which means that I am really top-heavy and I can't balance on my hind legs or even sit up and beg very easily - nor can I do anything very fast! :-) But I guess every doggie is least I can look noble and majestic while I'm doing stuff! Hee! Hee!
