A JUMPING BEAN IMPRESSION

THIS IS NOT OUR TEETER PERFORMANCE. Cricket actually has an awesome teeter now. Cricket learned the teeter following the directions on the Wendy Pape Teeter DVD which I highly recommend and really liked....something we did must have worked because Cricket has NO FEAR, LOL. ANYWAY, one of the games was jumping into the end position on a LOWEREDteeter, Cricket really likes that game, so now when ever we walk past the teeter she tries to jump onto the end, even with full height teeters, what a little nut ;-). This is not her best effort but I just happened to catch it on video.

What a little character is Cricket, and the look on your face is priceless. She certainly is not scared of the seesaw. So when is Crickets first trial?

Priscilla said...

A fearless girl!!! She's really brave!

Sara said...

Cricket you are a goose! A silly goose!

Diana said...

wow, that is teeter crazy. LOL What end performance does Wendy Pape teach on the teeter DVD?

Diana Wendy Pape shows a four on the board or a 2020, she has a short discussion about why you might choose one or the other, sort of goes over the pros and cons for dogs of different sizes, etc...then she shows how to teach it and gives modifications for really HUGE dogs, tiny dogs,etc... I am doing a four on the board with the front feet just hanging off the board.

Geraldine, unfortunately I got a partial tear in my hamstring so I am gimping along and not able to run, ;-(, so Crickets debut is sort of put on hold until I heal, which feels like it is going to take forever ;-(. Wish I had someone else I trusted to run her, but guess we are just going to have to wait!

hehe...Only Cricket would think of that. She is so motivated. Can you pass some of that speed on to Sagira :)

Cynthia said...

That's cute. :) WE did the bang game too at first, so the dogs wouldn't be afraid of the teeter. So far, so good.

haha, awesome! Well, clearly, the teeter is a high value spot for her! You've obviously built a strong reward history.... love it!
