On a forum of which I'm a member, someone posted a trick challenge. The challenge is to teach your dog to march. I decided to give it a try with my two.
We've only done a few sessions, but the dogs are doing great! Here's a video from yesterday, and they've even improved since then.
My plan is to break the behavior down like this:
1--Paw touch to palm
2--Paw touch to correct palm (left paw to right hand and vice versa)
3--Fade hand and substitute with foot (so the dog is pawing at the correct raised foot)
4--Fade physical touching with just lifting when the correct foot lifts
In the video we're somewhere between 1 and 2, and this evening we practiced in class and are at step 2.
