I've been trying to teach Renji how to sit "pretty" (or sit up and beg, however you look at it). No reason, it's just a cute trick. Is there an issue of balance and building up muscles before the trick can be properly performed? Renji will either just bounce a little on his hind legs or go stand straight up and "balance" on his rear paws or he'll just jump up. I've been trying to reward just the little "bounces" and trying to ask more and more, but I wonder if there is a better way to teach this or should I just stay the course and allow his balance and muscle to build? Right now I am holding a treat or toy over his nose, moving it back towards his rear, as he sits.
