Tricky t-Day ~Go to your Mat~

Here is a new trick Eva learnt yesterday with Rosie. It has not been perfected to the utmost level yet but hopefully soon we can get Eva to automatically sit and down when she's on the mat!
This trick ~Go to your mat~ will probably come in useful for us when we need to ask Eva to go to bed!
Enjoy!!

My brother is working very hard on that exercise, but he just pops up after a few seconds. Momma says he needs to keep practicing because it will be useful for keeping him still during his time outs at agility. But, you know, it is not the most interesting skill to learn so I can see why he doesn't practice.

Slobbers,
Mango

Good job! Eva is doing so well. I love watching a dog think things through like that. She's got quite the brain. :-)

What a great trick! Love the positive reinforcement! I know that nowadays alot of owners don't take the time to use clickers like we do (and you do too!), it is so great seeing that! Eva is so smart! She seems to learn very quickly. :-)
