Cute and funny video: Teaching Luna to climb onto my back!

In this video I started teaching Luna to climb onto my back. She is somewhat afraid of climbing on top of new things, so we had to take things slowly (in the sense of what’s considered slow for Luna). This is just the first step, and also the first training session on this particular trick. I will later post a follow-up training, and we’ll see how it goes!

I really like this training video. It shows that even though she is a fast learner, we have to make an effort — both of us. I am learning throughout the training what works and what doesn’t work, and I fail several times before I get it correctly. Training dogs is just as much about learning yourself as it is teaching your dog something.

Since Luna is such a highly energetic dog, I have started to end our training sessions with cuddle, massage and relaxation so we can build up a strong «off-button». If I don’t do that, she will become frustrated and try to find something fun to do on her own, and that usually means destroying something.

I hope you enjoy the video!

  1. Fantastic! Luna is so adorable 🙂

  2. Stilig! 🙂 Smart måte å lære hun det på da, morro å se video helt fra starten av og hvordan du faktisk går frem og lærer henne triks 😉

Had a lovely training session with this guy today. For a long while now I have been ill, and my training motivation hit rock bottom, leading to him not being trained to cope with every day life. Extra has not suffered from this, we have not trained these things because they have not been a part of our life. The mayor thing to teach this guy is to stop herding cars, and today's training started at the end of a big field next to the motor high way. We worked our way towards the driving cars, reinforcing contact, calm behaviour and ignoring the cars. The reinforcement was delicious wiener bites and the occasional tug toy when the situation called for it. I am still amazed about the suverinity of this dog! Even though he for 3 years has been herding cars whenever we have gotten close to them, this was an easy training. We got so close to the highway I had to stop because I would not go any closer to the moving cars, not because it was too much for him to handle! It was almost like herding cars never had been any issue at all ever in his life. One should never underestimate the power of reinforcing the behaviour we want of our dogs. I dared having him off leash as shown in the picture here from today, though I am not a fool: I went back to the safer side of the field just in case and I will never have any dog of any sort strolling close to the road off leash. This training session made me remember the good feelings about training dogs, why I used to love it so much and why I wanted border collies in the first place. It was just what I needed to get back in the saddle after such a long absence from what I have been doing for so many years! Today was a good day. Thank you Extra, for being such an awesome dog! 💪 #dogtraining #dogtrainer #positivereinforcement #clickertraining #bordercollie #awesomedog #happydog #dogowner #dogbehaviour
