    Hi, i thought id share with you my video of my little cocker x springer, sprocket.

    YouTube - Sprocket - My Sprocker Spaniel's Dog Tricks

    Im in the process of teaching him weave backwards, "hide your eyes" (covering face with his paw) and limp.

    Any other ideas on what i can teach him would be great, as everything in the video he has known now since he was 7 months.

    How about teaching him to wave or give you a hi-5? They're pretty easy to do and people find them adorable!

    btw - the play dead trick was the worst :tongue_smilie: your dogs tail gives him away :) he he

    It was so cute his little tail wagging away while "dead". I never knew pretending to be shot could be so much fun. Clever little thing!

    Nice dog name and nice video :) Did you do it for Zak George's new show, it's called "Who let the dogs out?" and is going to be on CBBC, or whatever they call it these days.

    If you can teach those spaniels to walk LLW or heel, then you would probably be in demand, judging by some recent threads!


    You obviously enjoy cute tricks, so what about extending the back, back stuff, by having her pull something, so it looks like some toys are getting tucked in or something? May be rolling a ball behind furniture to hide it, then flush it out again. Perhaps eventually you could have a doggy Newton's cradle simulation going?

    A kind of Hi-5 is easy to teach, but harder to get looking really right, my dog seems to enjoy it though. I'd choose a surface with give, rather than encourage jumping in a young dog on hard floors or ground (they do enough of that anyway).

    That was lovely. If you've taught all those moves you really should put a routine together and enter heelwork to music.

    Here's a few more:

    circle around your legs and then circle through your legs.

    circle around you backwards

    stand right up on hind legs

    lift one front paw and then the other as you walk along.

    lift hind leg and then the other

    Is that enough for now?

    I have the same issue when Charlie does our play dead. I say bang and he falls over, tail wagging, eyes watching for a treat. :D
