i would say that this trick is the hardest behaviour i have ever tried to teach ozzy. we have spent ages on it with small increments of improvement, it must be because it is so counter intuitive for him, we have parctised it loads, and we are getting there, just one more tree to go. so i just thought i would show the progress so far because he is doing very well, but he still struggles with it. he enjoys it, but i think he finds it really hard to compute the need to jump up on each tree with both legs, when in his mind, he could just get the frisbe by running directly to it.
i have to watch out for other dogs and cyclists coming close, because i am right near a blind entrance to the park that is very popular with dog walkers, and cyclists, but that is where the suitable line of trees are, so i have to work with it.
alongside ozzies tricks i am also experimenting with a higher quality video camera and sound setup.
