    Question: Can you tell me why my dog is learning nthn’ anymore?

    you have nice legs! :)

    Yup, free shaping. When we started I first got kind of a paw “slap” on the
    ground – then I started selectively rewarding for her slapping her paw to
    the side and eventually over her other paw. Peanut, my shih-tzu, probably
    never would have gotten anywhere that method either! :)

    Good idea and nice use of clicker and fading target. I trained my two dogs
    similarly but used a hand target instead of the yellow object. What it
    doesn’t show is how to move from fading the object to using the handler’s
    feet as a cue. Or the Chihuahua doing it – just a previously trained
    Collie. I found it helped to move from hand target when the handler is
    sitting and then to hand when standing. Move to hand and foot standing then
    finally just foot.

    Another great video! Thank you for taking the time to share your training

  14. funtasticjumps says:

    Awesome. I also think that seeing some of the trouble spots is very helpful.

  15. Orcaberbrandy says:

    Wonderful. I have now got my next trick to teach my dogs. Thanks.

    RIDICULOUS. When the chihuahua was learning to cross, the clicker was
    clicked, treat was given, mechanical. No connection or praise at all. Sad.

  19. xxsummerstarzxx says:

    I just love this trick. One to teach Dude I think :) Nice work!

  20. fungalonlywithjesus says:

    you can get a clikcer at petsmart. I got a nice one for a buck!

  21. TheHippyDippyCandys says:

    ill tri itttt

  22. Angie D says:

    when you do your videos can you try to remember to tell us what words you
    are using for the behavior.

  23. KatsDogs says:

    Another great training video! Kiko is just so darn cute. :) I taught Daz to
    cross her paws one way with just shaping and for the other way I used
    basically this method. For her, this method definitely got a “cleaner”
    behavior in the end!

  24. Ballingboy White says:

    ya man these vids are cool. is tht a chiwuwa?i have one and she is soo
    scared of everything. tht looks like my friends looks like a mix
    breed of some sort

  25. falcon55356 says:

    You and your dogs are amazing! I ended up on one of your videos and
    thought, “I’ll just watch this one,” and I’ve ended up watching almost all
    of them! Truly amazing!

  26. kiwwwwy says:

    i tought this to my chihuahua puppy! it worked!

  27. ILoveMinnimoo says:

    Adorable! You are a talented trainer! x

  28. BlueAronya says:

    My mom has been trying to teach my australian sheperd to cross her paws for
    a lone time, unsuccessfullly. Today I bought a clicker, and I was eager to
    get my dog well trained! My mom doesn’t beleive clicker training will
    work…i can’t want to see her face when my dog finally crosses her paws on
    que! Thanks so much for the amazing vids!

  30. mergirl3434 says:

    Wal*Mart has them or any pet store like petco petsmart

  31. jasperaliceuk says:

    A cracking video – something new to do for tomorrow. I loved the way Kiko
    was watching you and Splash.

  32. Maja Rokavec says:

    Great one!!! I also taught my one on targeting. :))) Can wait to see new
    videos! Enjoy! :)

  33. naisayd says:

    Another great trainging video. Thank you!

  34. Denise Kyle says:

    wer can i get the clicker

  35. mer1nga says:

    nice idea but when you fading a target is better to keep the same shape,
    round shape the object, round shape the paper is much more easy for the dog

  36. HorsebackAngel says:

    wonderful videos! we just got a 1 year old german shepherd and im really
    looking forward to teaching him some tricks :)

  37. hunkymonkeykaine says:

    Kiko did great! The matchsticks leg remark was too funny:). Thank you for
    making this video:). I will try your techinique and post a video soon:).
    Woofs n’ Wags, Ashley & Kaine Wow, Spalsh is REALLY good at crossing both
    her paws:)!

  38. maximumride987 says:

    Should my dog know how to lay down first before I attempt this? Also I feel
    very sorry for her when I watch these videos. She hears the clicker and
    goes “wtf human?”

  39. Snade Nardi says:

    Sadly, I can’t teach my dog to cross paws because dachshund has short legs.

  40. mergirl3434 says:

    Also a soda can works!

  41. something122133 says:

    There’s nothing wrong with that method. Extreme praise is usually done at
    the end of a session for a well-done along with more treats. Believe me,
    Kiko is plenty happy with learning that way.

  42. mcturtle says:

    I love all of your videos. Thank-you so much for posting them! They are
    very clear and easy to follow. I’m wondering if there is a trick to getting
    your dog to keep her paws crossed. My puppy has mastered crossing and will
    do it without the target. However, I can’t get her to keep her paw on the
    target. She moves it off so quickly that I can’t even click a second time.

  43. Katerina R says:

    my dog dont touch it with paw but with her head only:(

  44. Kristiina H says:

    Thanks for this tutorial, you can see the result on video responses:)
