Be Shy Trick

I taught this to Tibby while I was eating lunch.  She picked it up very fast.  I want to add a few more things to it, but it is still a cute trick! I use a hand signal (which you can't see obviously LOL!) as well as the verbal - 'be shy'. I've found that Tibby does better with hand signals and also with 2 or more word cues. Like 'take a bow' instead of 'bow' which she thought sounded like 'down'.

Very cute! That is Vito's "are you sad?" and Lance's "speedbump" trick :)

So cute! Is that popcorn that you're using as a treat when she does the trick correctly? I need more ideas for low-cal treats when training because kibble just doesn't get the reaction that a liver treat does, but I don't want to feed Oscar too many rich treats.

Thanks guys! It's so nice to have people who understand (have) dogs. I told some people at work today about Tibby's new trick. They don't get it! And they make fun of me for training my puppy! Weirdos....

Anyway----yup that is popcorn. Tibby likes it a lot.

Tibby is so cute!!!
I think I'm going to teach Eva this trick too but I have to change the command of it as our 'shy trick ' is different.
