Yesterday afternoon we started working on a new trick with Hestia—sit pretty! This is when they sit on their haunches and raise their front paws up.
I’m teaching it using luring. So I have her sit, and then hold a treat over her nose, a little up and back so she has to lift up her front legs to get it.
This is quite the core workout, so we are keeping sessions short!
She got it pretty well, as you can see by the video Brad took. In the video below, Hestia is a small white and black dog with a smushed nose and googley eyes. Veronica is a white woman with long brown curly hair, wearing a lavender dress with turquoise unicorn guinea pig leggings. We are seated outside in our driveway.
Pictures are below the video.
