    I want to add some new training to Roxy's routine so am after some ideas. We'll be doing it outside with her on a longline. She has no interest in any toys!

    Other than the standard sit, stay, down, recall etc, what else can I add for variation?

    Find It (as above; scentwork).
    What about directions? Left/right/ahead/this way
    Heelwork
    Leave It's always a good one to teach - whether inside or outside.

    How do you feel about tricks? They can be either inside or outside? Mine do:

    Spin/Other Way
    Paw/Other Paw
    Meerkat (work in progress)
    Milly skips (except I call it Prance), although admittedly she did that anyway, and I just put a name to it.

    Probably a few others, but I've got to go to work and my mind's drawing a blank atm :eek:

    We've added in sendaways around picnic tables on our walk, give and drop, recall games and scent work - the Talking Dogs Scentwork book is great, you can buy a kit but to be honest it's cheaper to get some toys, a clean dry tupperwear box and some cat nip from Pets at Home than. Proof indoors first.

    Tracking is done on a long line.
    Scentwork can be done on a long line
