"Play Dead"

I'm finally getting around to editing and putting together some videos that I've accumulated of the dogs. We have some tricks that are a little back logged. Some that worked for the most part and some that I decided to stop working on because it was physically causing me pain for the dogs to do the tricks.

Today we have the "Play Dead" trick. Bess caught on to this super fast! She started anticipating the commands, which I have to admit that I still thought was cute. Heffner is physically more dog to get around for the initial part, so it was more awkward for me to start the initial phase of the trick. I'm pretty happy with the finished product. Enjoy!

I love the huge sweeping gestures you have to make in the beginning!

Both are doing fantastic! Although if you used your other arm to gesture you could have transitioned to it being a gun hand signal, even though you're not using bang as a verbal.
