Kelsey Learns A Trick

Kelsey has learned a new trick-play dead.  I think she plays dead a little too happily though...notice the wagging tail.  A big thanks to Julie who recorded it for us.

On day 1, she learned the basic steps.  
On day 2, she learned the command for putting those steps together and started to understand it.  On day 3, I could see her lightbulb turning on and she nailed it several times.  The biggest hurdle was that she wanted to roll over instead of going on her side.  You see, after Kelsey learned how to roll over, she decided that she LOVES doing that.  She wants to roll over super fast for a treat...she will even do a few in a row while following that treat.  I have even seen her rolling all the way over when she plays with her toys.


  1. Bravo Kelsey. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Woo Hoo girl. I like your happy play dead.

  3. Urrr I hate that I can't see the video cuz I'm taking care of my Dad today and thru Sunday and having to use my cell which isn't showing me it...urrr!

  4. that is so great! kudos to you!
    my dogs have always been afraid of roll over. they just never took to that one. i can get them to lay down but never to roll over :(
