tRicky T-Day!

Today we watched a video kikopup made about how to train your dog to get in a purse (bag). Mom smugly thought this would be something very easy for me to learn and ambitiously set up the video camera to record our first training session! Ha! Here is the video! We apologize for the length but the original video was 13 minutes long and we got tired of editing! So when you see that it is 4.25 minutes long, thank us for cutting a lot out! :) Also two notes: 1. When training a mostly black dog, do not use a black bag and 2. When training a Sheltie, ignore kikopup's advice about throwing a treat into the bag to entice the dog in because the Sheltie will then forever think there is another piece of food in the bag no matter how many times they are told there isn't any!




Now you know what I have to deal with on a daily basis!

In other news, I did my fastest-ever-away-from-home-regulation-equipment weave poles in class last night - I was actually hopping two-footed over the base of the weaves. Mom was shocked and thrilled with my performance!

Gotta zoom!

I like that you left plenty in the video so we could really see, that is a terrific trick, I love it and I love your hints, I think I am going to have to find a big bag and try that!

Sara said...

I think you were trying to create your own trick, and your mom just couldn't figure it out! I think you thought she was saying "zip" not "sit", and you were going to stand on your front legs and zip the bag shut!

Congrats on your fast weaves:)

Oh Ricky! The things you do for love, right!? Katie watched the video with me, and at about 4 minutes she crawled into my lap to get a closer look.

that was so much fun and it was so cool listening to your mom laughing and having as much fun. It is a good thing you are such a cute little zoomie though...I would never fit that bag!!!!

Marie said...

That was awesome! Definitely looked like a fun training session. Ricky sure does like that rear leg lift. LOL Super news to hear about your speedy weave poles too! Keep up the good work. :-)

I loved it! He is SO CUTE! I was laughing too while watching the video. I can't wait to get my Sheltie puppy!

BOL!!! What Khyra said, BOL!!!! After teaching all that back leg stuff, what's a sheltie to do, BOL!!! Thank you for the giggles we loved seeing all the behind the scenes stuff :)

Fizz said...

BOL! We think it's a great idea for a trick :-)

Aw..Ricky, you look so cute sitting in that bag! :-) I laughed at the bit when your human told you to get out and you sort of bounced out backwards! Ha! HA! Well, I think you're doing awfully well - your human should try doing stuff with me...then she'll REALLY know what "slow" means - ha! ha!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
ps. do you think I could try the same trick? But where would I find a bag big enough??

You are such a cutie in that bag, Ricky!! We love how your mom had a sense of humour! :) Congrats on the fastest-ever-away-from-home-regulation-equipment weaves too! :D
