tricky T'day

So, this last week, I keep improving on the "stacking" trick with the boys, Sing and Sonic seems to be the easiest to teach this trick but not Saturn and Sizzle. How weird! Saturn and Sizzle have very strong "hold" behaviour but I just can't get them to perform this trick naturally like Sing and Sonic did. 

So, both Sing and Sonic progress to stacking 3 containers now, even Saturn beginning to get the idea and is able to stack 3 containers but he has his own unique way of doing it, the "Saturn's way"! As Saturn has the strongest "hold" in The KNIGHTs Shelties household, to get him to drop the container proof to be the most difficult task! After some trial and error, we came up with me asking Saturn for his paw (hand shake), he will then drop the container. How cute is that? I was trying to wean him off that but no success yet. I don't really mind the "Saturn's way", I think he is really cute. What do you think?

And this is Sonic's improve stacking trick:

Fantastic! Both boys are doing great with the bowl stacking! I think Saturn's way is absolutely adorable!
