  2. Hahah...Very cool! We're still in the process of learning the 'rollover' but I like the look of 'back back' too. The book would definitely help with inspiration

  6. Back back is very cool. And a good exercise to keep your dog's leg muscles balanced.

    Any quick tips on how to get Slimdoggy Jack to walk backwards instead of turning around?

    1. Try setting up a narrow walkway. Either use furniture, like a wall and a long sofa or some kind of fencing. Then mark any kind of movement backward with a click or a marker word (and treat). I've also trained back-back with Rocco and I going the same direction. I still have to do that against a wall to keep Rocco going straight back next to me.
