  1. wow, this is a great way to train this trick!! it’s so cool to come up with a bunch of ideas for training tricks, it also good because one way might work better for one dog and another way for another dog ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m training Vinnie this at the moment and he is just targeting one foot at a time so I’ll give this way a try ๐Ÿ™‚ and thanks for the mention in this video Em ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Cool. I do believe Mi has enough confidence to give this trick a go, and it will be really helpful to have this method and Sian’s. How did you get Splash to bounce straight up like that? Mi always turns one way or another, or bounces towards me.

    Cool pants btw

  3. Oh Tug is so cute! Awesome new way to train “cop cop” and I love the T-SHIRT!!!! I have not read the other comments, but was wondering how to get a big dog (Isabelle) to do it this way. I find it hard to get my feet close together without losing my balance. Splashers LOVES that trick! She is so amazing at it!

  4. great video:D
    this is similar to how i taught my puppy this trick, though i taught her to go between first, and then we went strait on to teaching her feet on mine without using any targeting props. shes a smart girl and picked it up quickly:)

  5. I am determined to train this one with my flat coat x. I have already clicker trained a really fun ‘it’s yours’ command where he pulls something towards him with his paw. This means it’s very difficult to get him to paw something without dragging it towards him as he seems very stuck on this behaviour with whatever object i give him.

  6. I think just using a plain old lure will work. Lure him onto a phone book, keeping his head up and looking at the treat and click him for stepping up. Repeat like 20 times, and then try shaping it (just to give him a hint of what you want first)

  7. Great video! To be honest, I’ve never seen this trick before but it looks like quite the entertaining “show off” trick. I think I’ll give this a try ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Really cool! I have always wondered how to teach that trick to my dogs. Thank you!

    How did you teach Splash the bouncing trick at the end of the video? I really want to teach my aussie that, but can’t figure out how to do it.

  9. Emily I think you are amazing!!!! I really love your video, which is very very good for learning, showing the technique steps by steps that I can follow easily. In 2 days time i got him to put his paws on my feet . BTW, wonder how did the bouncing trick do? I seems interesting and I really want to learn it.

  10. I love this method! I had been trying other ways to do this but Jackson was always very reluctant to place his feet on mine and was leary of doing it. I had kind of given up on the trick for a few months, but came and re-watched this video, and within 5 minutes Jackson was placing his feet on mine. He started with one foot, but moved to two. I took the book away that I used too soon tho, but that’s our progress as of tonight! I have not yet begun to move my feet, I don’t want to frighten him

  11. thank you very much. It is the best video to teach my dog to do the “cop, cop” by far. I love it and my dog can stand on my feet now. Thank you again.

  12. Thanks so much for sharing this training method! I’ve tried teaching this to my 11 month old border aussie before without much success but I just had a go using this method and she startes to pick it up right away, I was so happy! P.s It made me laugh seeing your aussie bouncing…although my girl’s only half aussie, she LOVES to jump too. : )

  13. Thanks for this excellent method. I have a small dog that lacks some confidence under legs or with inanimate objects over and near his head. In less than 5 minutes he had both feet on my feet.(one on one) We had already practiced having him between my legs which he could do butI could notice the lack of confidence as he wanted to be ready to back out. Targeting the book was also under our belt. Even if we don’t get the walking down, having the book slightly in front promotes a more confident look.
