Hey chief, Welcome to Dogster!
Any way cause I have not seen you here before though I have not been here in a while either.
Love the combo of your breed I had a full blooded Carin terria a long time ago before now For a pet. I have a bully dog now for my SD. Love your costume too I am not sure what I am going to
do for Sadie we don't normally dress up for the Halloween deal though I have thought many times to do so. She is BL/Wh And thought that I would dress her up as a skelleton but now shure why I am doing so since I dont have lil kids any more though my room mate dose and the kids love sadie and come for that day. Thinking of getting a bag of candy for each since we don't have that come around though now we have the Neighbors kids. So four bags would be enough I think. Have to think that through cause My roommates daughter is allergic to choc.
well any way cool costume hope you get lots of doggie treats. LOL!

Sadie.. Chief is with Josephine and Jolanda the SD's... Sonja is their Mum. She is often in this SD thread....She fostered a dog who was pregnant and Chief was one of the puppies... looks nothing like his Mum. Sonja did a WONDERFUL job with the Mum and the pups.. and kept Chief as he has great promise for her as the next generation of SD for her. hug

Chief's making wonderful progress.
He is getting really good with all sorts of distractions and dog distractions on and off lead. This was a great trainings unit. Our remote control pals and our GSD pal helped us with the training this particular day.
Have fun watching dog walk

Chief and I do lots of happy trick fun - he's getting really good..
We go through parts of his repertoire daily, add a few new things here and there, go into more detail with others, change old ones, add distance, length, etc.. He likes variety and so do I.
I had to make a list of things we have been working on so far - it turned out to be quite long......
in random order:

1. basics, such as sit, stay, settle, heel, align, keep going, turn about, stand, come, go, wait, come on..

2. touch
3. nudge (ball with nose or any other item to make it move)
4. leave it
5. open and get the pouch for the meds
6. push (opening doors)
7. close (doors or drawers)
8. gimmie (items into my hand)
9. dunk it (items into a bowl)
10. chest (resting in a "settle" on my chest for seizures)
11. calm (on my lap calmly and quietly)
12. button (bottom door buttons and other fun buttons to push)
13. knock it over (items, slamming doors, kicking legs.. with his front paws)
14. paw
15. high fife
16. pray
17. ledge (open ledges - baaaad idea)
18. bow
19. weaving (legs and poles and arms)
20. socks (undressing in general - socks is just an example)
21. check (looking into the direction I ask him to by putting my fingers to my ear as a cue for left and right)
22. interrupting/alerting to the lip smacking
23. interrupting biting my cuticles
24. making sure I take my meds, by following a certain routine, which includes "touch" my leg until I take the meds and turn off the phone alarm)
25. watch (me)
26. shame *new* putting his nose inbetween his front paws and look awfully miserable
27. hide *new* (hiding a small item under his front paws by holding it like a squirrel holds a nuts - freaking cute!)
28. hold (holding an item in his mouth until released - he frequently carries them when asked, now)
29. picking up items, such as the leash, keys, shoes, socks, ...... by name.
30. tail (holding his tail) *new*
31. dig (digging on command)
32. sniff his own butt (funny) *new*
33. lift leg on command and not peeing!
34. count (barking) *new*
35. over and under and around (dogs, chairs, fence,....)
36. up and down
37. ramp (going up and down ramps by himself)
38. teeter (-board)
39. such (search items and Hendrik)
40. find exit, restroom, quiet spot
41. get the ball (hand retrieve)
42. on my back (jumps on my back)
43. crossing front legs
44. .................

wow* that's a lot! he is really great at some and flaky at others. But altogether he does really well.....
Great I got the list now or else I would forget wink

Does anyone else like to do tricks with their dogs?
It's really fun and helps with the task training big time dog walk
