When we walk into Liz's tricks class, Lizzie is spacey, lunging around to go see everyone, and looks like she has never been on a leash. After an hour of the class, Little Liz walks out like an obedience dog, loose leash, at my side and calm as can be. An hour of clicker training and shaping wears her out like nothing else in the world does. We do a lot of work in that class, we are at week 5 and this is the list of what we have worked on-not all totally done but we are working on them:
1. Roll over
2. 101 things to do with a box
3. lick on command
4. Turn their head to the side and pose for pictures
5. lay down and reach their paws forward, then put their head on the ground to look sorry.
7. high five
9. retrieve their leash and other things
and now we are starting to teach them to read commands off a card, we did "sit" and "down".
It really amazes me how fast Liz picks things up and the more things she learns the faster she picks it up.
