Stupid Pet Tricks

In the "stupid pet tricks when it's too cold to go outside" department... Kodi and I have been playing with Zen Bowl in a number of different applications. I had also started working on "independent figure 8" with him using fly poles, because I saw someone do it with their dog and thought Kodi would think it was fun. Here he is doing it with open food containers. It was just kibble in the containers, but... He didn't look at them ONCE:

Tux does that with our round coffee table, sometimes of his own volition. The methodology is to see how many times one can growl and run circles around the table, reversing course with each completed lap as Mom instructs the direction with arms flailing in a right or left circle. Kodki's trick looks so much more refined than Wild Man Growly Pants.

Ha! Then try it with two open food containers and see if he'll do it without stopping for a snack! LOL!

It wouldn't work. I taught him to "go find the treat" in open plastic cups hidden around the house. He is supposed to find them, and knock them over with his paw, whereupon I cheer, he waits while I give him the treat inside the overturned cup. He might need therapy if I had him ignore what he was taught to seek out and knock over while running around the table. LOL

The interesting thing is that I teach my dogs both. They know that if they leave the “Zen Bowl” alone and do the task that is asked of them, they will get LOTS of treats directly from me. (We start with higher value treats from me, and something lower value in the dish) They also learn that when I say “Bingo”, they get to run to the dish and get the treat there.

Here’s how I teach tthem to wait for my cue telling them where they will get the treat: https://youtu.be/ASbuB8iWrP4

The end is using “Bingo” as a way to help him learn not to move foward during position changes for the “signals” exercise in Obedience.

I'll try. Usually the "coffee-table-growly-sprint" is immediately when we come inside from a potty walk and his leash is released.....like one of those commercials for laxatives where they jump up and down and sing "I feel good!" I typically am not armed with a camera, but will try and remember. It's hard to film and flail arms at the same time. LOL
