Here is sit pretty – My challenge is to get Trooper to not stand up on his hind legs. Any suggestions? https://vimeo.com/288440105/f531b008cf

Ok… No lure – I think I can shape him with this. Thinking about it he actually does do paw lifts. Let me see how this continues in the next coming days. Thank you again for the feedbacks!

I will leave the suggestions to Jordan – but wow Trooper is a cutie!!!

We have been working on sit pretty for awhile but i`ve never been able to do it without him keeping his paws on me.

Today, i changed position and its better but i just read your earlier response about shaping it instead of luring. Should i change my approach?

So, im not sure i understand. Just wait for him to lift one or both front paws? I dont think he will offer to lift up.

What is the FF challenge?

Thanks Jordan. We worked again last night and I chose to use a target (just a small square of a yoga mat). That seemed to work very well with all of my dogs. As long as I am standing up – they will offer to use their paws to a target instead of their nose. With ICE (the Dutch Shepherd) I still need to have my position next to him not in front of him. I am sure that will fade as he gets better but for now he can’t stop himself from using me as a platform. LOL Any… Read more »

Hi @Jordan Biggs,

I must admit I wasn’t able to get Judge to do this so had started to lure. Love the idea of the foot target and did a small session today with some small success. Will continue to work this and fade the target.

@Jordan Biggs. Here is his third short session of shaping this trick. His duration is getting a little stronger but don’t want to do too much with this young guy.

Hi @Jordan Biggs What do you think of Judge’s sit pretty, do I need to change anything?

Trouble uploading my sit pretty video…I’ll do that later.
But one problem that I have noticed is getting this skill at a distance. …I take it I should just gradually increase distance at small steps?
Second question: should I treat while she is in “sit pretty” and/or should I say “break” to get her out of sit pretty.
