our first tricky T-day

At long last, I finally got time to teach the dogs a trick or two. Since I have the skate board out for the pup to play, I thought I will teach Sipzie how to surf! I have taught the boys to surf but it is also a good time to remind them the trick. Sizzle has a good memory and he surf really well but Sing and Saturn taught the skate board is another "elephant circus" trick, they made me laugh!

In this video, this is first time I introduced Sipzie to the skate board, although she has seen the puppy playing with it but she has not interact with it before. I am very happy the way she knew what to do already. She is one greedy sheltie and she is the only of my dog that snatch food off my hand. I have been trying very hard to train her to take food off me gently but it didn't work. The first time, I used treat and she made my finger bled :-(, so I have to change it to squeeze cheese, so she has no chance to take my finger off :-)

great trick!! Miley tries to take my fingers off with treats only if she thinks the other dogs are going to get it. If they arent around she is fine. Diana
