We worked a bit on the Take A Nap trick and got it pretty much there with Bess. With more work I'm confident that I could get Bess to fully unroll the mat without a treat hiding inside, I just was wanting to move on to working on other tricks! Heffner started losing interest when there wasn't a cookie hiding inside the rolled up mat. He has the basic understanding of the trick, but I didn't spend enough time phasing out the rolled up cookie with him to really finish the trick. Either way, I'm happy with where we got on this trick and we had fun with it! And guess what! I managed to make a short video!LOL I cut out a lot of the initial work that we did with just going to the mat in the beginning. I was a little bored with it, so it got cut. I hope you enjoy!
A week from tomorrow the dogs and I head down to Lodi, CA for the big northern California great dane specialty!! I'm REALLY excited, but the list of things that I still need to take care of before I start packing on Wednesday night is growing! I kind of tend to forget about little things like doing the dogs nails and bathing both of them the night before we leave, and suddenly I have a lot less time in my evening. And this weekend we've got an agility trial on Saturday and all the Easter family stuff on Sunday. It's going to be a crazy next few days getting ready! It will be a much needed mini vacation though, and I'm looking forward to it.:0)
