I like to entertain myself in winter by teaching dog tricks... Bequia almost reads your mind she is so smart and learns so fast. Toe learns it but he's more "what's in it for me?" and likes his treats and then there is Sammy who is such a spaz I have to really tone it down and not use my happy voice or he really just can't think.... he still gets treats and praise but it's on a much low-key level.
So far - they know gimme 5 (right paw) and shake (left paw)... I'm teaching them all spin where they turn in a small circle...
Sammy and Toe know how to roll over (Bequia is older and rolling over seems like it's uncomfortable for her so I don't ask her that one anymore tho' she could roll over both ways when she was younger).
Bequia knows how to crawl on her belly, sit up to beg and holds a treat on her nose til you tell her o.k. then she flips it up and catches it.
Toe can skooch... he lays down and moves backwards while in his down.
And Furry Husband has ME trained to fetch him a beer when I'm all done playing with the doggers!
