    Just submitted Finn's application for his intermediate trick dog title. I've been doing the trick dog stuff with both of my dogs, and they both love it. It has been a great way to keep them busy in bad weather. I've includes some videos of Finn doing some tricks, hoping to get the advanced and maybe expert titles on both dogs this year.

    For his ITD, we did half intermediate tricks and half advanced. Here are some of his intermediate tricks:

    Your dogs give me goosebumps. They're so sleek and athletic. Gorgeous crops too. Nice work, Finn! Please feel free to post many more photos and videos of your two.

    I have a question about back up. Backing up for Hector means turning in a circle and then walking away from me, does that count?

    Thanks everyone! Hannah is a foster fail, and a senior, I've only had her for about two years. I think she looks pretty good for a dog with a heart condition and being around 11, but I can't take much credit, she pretty much came to me looking that way. Finn is pretty much just awesome, although definitely a teenager. Definitely the most energetic Dane I've owned, but he was raised with a Doberman and I think he thinks he is one.Backup is one of the hardest things I've taught them, neither of them could get it with luring, so we had to shape it. Or more accurately, I shaped Hannah, then Finn watched Hannah and offered the behavior as well. Same thing with the easy button, he loves to copy her!

    I love it! And Titan so just gorgeous! Is that through "Do More With Your Dog"? I was just looking at the requirements and think I might try it out. We can do that stuff in the house while we are waiting for warmer weather to do more parkour...

    It is with Do More With Your Dog, we joined one of the free Sparks groups on Facebook. We did the Discover Pet Training group for Novice and Intermediate, and the Take A Chance group for Advanced. I think I like the instructional videos for the Take A Chance group better, so might recommend checking those out if interested.

    I like the Take a Chance Facebook groups too. I used them for Rhaegar's Intermediate and Advanced. Still working on Expert - it's tough!
