KristiM He is 3.5 and in super good shape! He is my hiking buddy/agility superstar

I back chained the bang trick with a clicker. Just sat on the ground with him, made a fist with a treat in my hand and held it on the ground and waited for him to offer his chin on the ground. Clicked, and progressed from there. It was a very easy trick to back chain.

RocketDog Love it! How old is he? He is in great shape!! I'm trying to figure out some new tricks to teach my pup. How did you teach the "bang" one? Did you back chain it and/or use a clicker?

KristiM Odin is seriously such a fun dog! He is always such a happy worker no matter what we are doing

I like the idea of teaching him to weave backwards through my legs. It will be a tough one since his rear end awareness kind of sucks. I will have to wrap my head around how to teach that, will need to google some videos.

To teach him to sit from a down I think I just lured it? Or maybe I just said "sit" and made kind of a jumping up motion, then faded it. Keep in mind that it does take a little bit of coordination so part of it for your puppy is going to be learning to use some muscles that he may not have used before.

Cstout What a cute video! How did you teach him to sit up from a down position? I am having trouble teaching my puppy this, I just dont know how to show him what i want him to do. He will always just stand right up from a down position.

1sttimeforgsd You have done an awesome job with your handsome boy, congratulations! You might try to teach him to go through the weave walking backwards, I saw a dog do it on tv once and I thought it was so cool. Thanks for sharing with us, I enjoyed watching it.
