Re: Training Challenge #5 - Leg Weaves!
This is a fun exercise with the right dog! My chows are good at this - since they're not very tall and have compact bodies, they can weave through my legs without much trouble. Trick learned to do this, too, but I had to be much more careful how I stepped or I'd catch her toes.
At this point I can't imagine trying it with Tazer (i.e. "the wild thing") because she'd probably kill me in the process .. *L* .. but I might pick it up again with Khana. We haven't done it in a long time. It really is a fun trick.
With all these training challenges, just think of how much we can all show off this summer! I like to do these tricks and obedience behaviors while training outside of the local stores (for distraction). People are tremendously impressed by things like heeling and stays - just think how they will be impressed by leg weaves and tick-tocks! *L*

Positive 1ST! More reward, less correction makes a GREAT trainer.
