    Taught V. the Place game to get her fat ass moving :grin:

    I have to add something to it now - cause she gets bored fast. I'm thinking multiple targets...

    I added in the training process in case anyone wants to do it and because it's funny to watch V. learning

    She's super vocal, if Remy was like that he'd been kicked to the curb (kidding). So do you just minus the treat kibble from her meals right?

    LMAO - OMG she never STFUs!!!! She has something to say a bout EVERYTHING! Unless her anxiety kicks in for some reason - then she looks & acts like a little Church mouse.

    When I use kibble to train - the means it's dinner time and she's earning her dinner. That's why I throw out a handful at a time - if I tried to stretch it out too much she'd throw a clot and have a stroke.

    Sometimes I'll use better treats but not a lot ...as you know....fat girl with a crazy grandmother...

    She tries!

    Thanks! Veronica has her own youtube channel with all her adventures chronicled :grin:

    Lots of trick training videos & other stuff:

    This is great- reminds me a little of the "paper plate recalls" exercise I've seen. Good tip on practicing in different locations, Griffin still has trouble moving some of his tricks outside.

    Multiple targets is a really fun variation- here is Griffin doing that:

    Just a few minutes of this and he is so tired, it's awesome!

    That's awesome MN! I definitely have to add more targets.

    Outside is always tough for V. at first cause she gets so distracted.

    I trained directional marks with the trick dog stuff, we were up to five, it was all on body language and where i pointed, we do it in the winter when its too cold to do anything else lol.
    Even if youre not interested in doing the titles the books have lots of simple, and not so simple tricks you an teach easily, i started it because i couldnt think of anything new to train, so hey how about we climb a ladder or jump hoops around me hahahahaha.

    Thanks I'll check it out - we're at that point of not being able to think of any other tricks to learn too so I need ideas-

    anything else I can think of isn't a good fit for V. physically - but then I didn't think she could do the handstand and I was able to modify it to account for her advanced age and general lack of coordination :lol: - so maybe I'm just not thinking as creatively as I could!

    You know I love how she always has to give you shit. She was standing on the target, even moved it....no reward. She just had to sass because her highness wasn't rewarded fast enough! I love watching these, so much attitude.

    What are you using for the target? I'd like to try this with my lazier than your dog. He sounds like V when he runs, that's when I can actually get him to run!

    That was great to watch. Brightened my spirits to see the divine Miss V. in action!

    I started using a plastic plate as the target then graduated to an old container lid when we got outside and got more distance (I figured it would be easier for her to fins it if it were bigger.

    And OMG...when she runs she sounds like she's going to keel over. It's not my fault. I bought the bitch her very own treadmill...she refused to use it. I put her in agility classes - she hid under the A-Frame or went inside the tunnel and wouldn't come out. I even had the doctor check her heart :smirk: healthy as a horse...just....lazy!

    And by "you" you mean you're blaming Vicki - she's the purveyor of enticing products :grin:

    Thanks MM
