It’s been a long time since I showed off a new trick on this here website. Perhaps because it’s been a long time since Shiva and I perfected anything. I’ve only my own laziness to blame, of course.
The handstand saga continues, much to my dismay. Though I think we are in the home stretch now. I’ve decided Shiva is finally ready for me to up the criteria. I will no longer reward her for putting her back feet on a tree or a wall, or anything else for that matter. It is now both feet in the air or all she gets is a blank stare. Hopefully this will help her figure out the final goal and I’ll be able to present something pretty wicked within a month or so.
Cross your fingers!
In the meantime, I’d love to work on something simpler as well. Now that spring is in the air I have more motivation to experiment. It’s just about time to shake off the winter dust! There are a few little behaviours we’ve been working on but nothing worth presenting. Certainly nothing even close to being on cue. I’ve flipped through a couple of my trick books but nothing sounded all that exciting. Apparently my creativity is still in hibernation mode.
So. This is where you come in! Below I set up a little poll and I’d love it if you’d take a second to vote for your favourite trick. I entered a few options of things we’ve half-worked on but if you’ve got another idea that sounds like fun, please feel free to plug it in! We’ll see how ambitious I get – maybe we’ll even accomplish more than one!
Thanks in advance for your help!
