Tessa’s rear end awareness – pivoting exercise [video]

on February 10, 2012

This is a rear end awareness exercise that teaches the dog to move his/her rear end around while keeping his/her front paws on a book, mat or stepping stool. Rear end awareness is a foundation for complex behaviors.

This is just the beginning of this exercise. I still have to teach Tessa to do free rotation and eventually remove the stool.

I’m also working on this exercise with Java, so I’ll post a movie of her doing it soon.
