family hug

we've been teaching our dog "family hug".
my GF and i will hug. one of us says family hug
and our dog will walk between us. we started teaching him this a few days ago.

as we're hugging one of us extends an arm and says "family hug".
we step back a little so our dog can walk between us. the first
few times we did it we would say "family hug, come Loki".
now we say "family hug". we did it this morning with saying
"family hug" and he did it.

i think i'm going to work on having him sit between us when
we say family hug instead of walking between us.
