    Default Is your dog left or right handed?

    I guess its possible right? When I was teaching Calli shake I used her right paw. She never really got it and I couldnt figure out why. Now she does it no problem, but with her laft paw.

    Just wondering who else has a lefty?

    Courtney, Bogey and Calli

    I guess it is possible. I know when I taught Lexi how to "give paw" she favored her right side at first. I have finally taught her to give both paws.

    When I was initially teaching her to give both paws, was she would only give her other paw if I asked for it with my other hand.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    I taught Fender to give "left paw" and "right paw." When we got him though, he only wanted to give his left paw. BUT, when he wants a few pets, he bats me with his right paw. He's ambidextrous (and kitty-like)!
