I have long thought that Charley was unable to learn anything new. I figured he was too old and his balls too attached. However, I have become determined to teach him to roll over. He knows sit, shake, down, stay, heel, load up (into the truck), go (get out of the way), and come (unless he is distracted). Those are all needed dog skills, except shake, and I thought Charley needed more real tricks in his life. John was dubious, but Charley is treat motivated! So, here is Charley's new trick:
Now that Charley has almost mastered 'roll over', I'm trying to think of other tricks to teach him. Unfortunately, he is too top heavy to be able to balance on his back feet for 'raise the roof'. Leave a comment with your dog's best trick and tips for teaching it and we will work on learning it!!!
