    DefaultIndi's new trick (pics)

    Indi learned "BANG" She is really good at playing dead. She doesn't even move her tail. Here are a few pictures of her today just after she learned it. She has a few poses for it but they pretty much resemble the other.

    The full out pose


    My son took this one. This is her look up to see if a treat is coming pose.


    The, I'm starting to loose the pose look


    And the all time favourite pose. I think this one is great. Her finest work. ;D

    that is so neat! I can't wait until I can teach Sally all those tricks. Right now, my main focus is the great trick of NO BITE!

    So fun! I tried to teach Tucker this trick but he failed miserably, when I did the BANG noise he ran away ...

    Treats, treats and more treats. LOL. I had her lay down and then I put her in the position for the first time, using the command as I did. Then I helped her position herself until it was in the play dead position. After that it was just a simple use of the command while she was in play dead mode. I would tell her to stay right after I said the command so she knew she couldn't break the pose until I said release. While she was in the pose I would treat, treat and treat some more. Each time I would say," Good Bang." She picked it up really quickly. She likes to work and perform so she was easy. She is also more submissive which helps.

    Petey is an alpha personality so although I taught him to play dead he will not go onto his back. He was too busy squirming and trying to get over that I finally had to say forget it and just taught him to lay on his side. It's still cute when he does it because once in a while he will put up his one front paw and put his head back in his half play dead pose. ;D
