I’ve been a member on the GoldenRetrieverForum for some time now but I usually am only around there when I have a question or two. I logged on the day before yesterday and had a question about Frisbee training and I needed some suggestions for new tricks. Member “Summer’s Mom” had TONS of brilliant ideas and gave me a link to her YouTube channel where she has some videos of Summer’s tricks. HERE is the post with some videos she posted when I asked about teaching “Sit Up”. I’ve been having trouble teaching Dixie this one because her balance (and mine) were a bit off. But with “Summer’s Mom”‘s method I think we may be able to pull it off. 😀 I’m going to try to teach Dixie this starting tomorrow.
I FINALLY bought a hula hoop today (it’s so hard to find a reasonably priced one around here!) at Menards for $5. They were like $8 or $9 at WalMart. 😛 But Dixie is excited about it! I thought she might be a bit afraid of it initially but she’s been a doll about it. So far, she’s just getting used to going through it at an inch off the floor after she went through it on her own several times when it was sitting on the floor. Wish us luck! ^.^ I’ll try to get some pictures of our training sessions soon. 🙂
