I've been trying to start up/finish more tricks the past two months.
Fi has been working mainly on being a frog. This was actually surprisingly easy for her even though she never lays with her back legs out just on her own. I used a pillow and was able to get rid of it in 1.5 sessions.
I've also never actually taught her to cross her paws yet so we started. She still needs a target out in the beginning of each session but I can take it away for a few reps in the middle before she needs it again.
Vito's been working on itching. I suck at capturing things as that would actually require having treats and a clicker handy, so I decided to shape it. It's progressed weirdly and I wasn't sure I was going to get it but I think he's just starting to get the idea! For awhile I just had a touch nose to back foot behavior; that was odd.
His main other trick has been cleaning up his cross paws behavior. While I taught him it as a puppy I never got it on cue and it was more of a stretch your foot as far as possible rather than put one foot on top of the other. It was bad. I'm pretty sure I've tried a few other times to clean it up but this appears to be one trick I've never stuck with for long. The good news is we've made much progress and I haven't stopped trying yet.
Other tricks I've been working on off and on have been a japanese dog catch and standing on a small box. The dog catch is going so-so. Vito already knew a back stall and is targeting nicely to my lower hand but doesn't want me to hold him on the side. I'm not entirely sure why since he has a normal dog catch he loves. So we're taking it very slowly. The small box work is hopefully to help my goal of getting a foot stall. Vito already knew to stand in small dish, but once again I sucked at getting a clean behavior so he has always done a lot of dancing around. 3 feet in consistently with the 4th one going in for just a tiny bit before popping out. We now have duration. But since I originally taught it as get the back feet in and then step backwards with the front feet, he cannot walk onto the little box cleanly without stepping over and then backing on. I'm thinking that won't work for a foot stall!
I haven't been working with the corgi as much as the other two. His new trick this month has been attempt at getting frog legs. Should have been easy since he does it all the time on his own but it has been the opposite of that. I said I suck at capturing! The pillow has not worked that well as he is extremely good at lifting up his back legs to stand on the pillow or tries to crawl with them. I think we have finally made some progress the last two sessions even though I don't think he realizes it.
We've also been doing some strength work of beg-down-beg. The corgi thinks it's great fun. And trying to get a tiny bit of duration to his side leg lifts.
Cats. I don't know how we make any progress. The good news is that even though he still acts like he has no idea the clicker means anything, he is starting to actually offer behaviors. Sometimes. We have been working on a little distance on our tunnel, sitting on a little box, our stupid back stall, leg weaves (ha!), and a stay.
