Lots of tricks

I've been teaching Mika and Wall-e a lot of tricks lately. I taught Mika how to Scratch Me (paw one of my hands when I'm kneeling in front of her), do a figure 8 around my legs with only one slight hand gesture, improved on the preciseness of her retrieves (she now drops whatever she's retrieving in my lap instead of in front of me), and some other things I can't remember at the moment. :) With Wall-e, I mostly worked on obedience, but I also taught him Shake (give me his left paw). I'll teach him Paw (give me his right paw) soon!



  1. Tricks are so much fun - mom and I try to learn new ones all the time - right now we have several in progress. Mom subscribes to a lot of trick-trainers on YouTube. If you want to check any of them out, go to my YouTube channel - rickyagility.

    Have fun!

  2. Wow. We didn't even know that there is a difference between 'shake' and 'paw'. Now we can teach our Ma something new :)

  3. Thanks for your channel Ricky, I'll check it out. And I'll make sure to subscribe to it too!

    Isn't it great to teach your Ma new stuff, Josh and Jess! :)
