So some of you may have heard rumors of a little video I made of Luna, showing off her barking skills, well here it is.
She has always been a vocal dog, so I thought I would share her abilities with all of her fans. Bear with me as this was the first video I have done with my new camera (well shared anyway). I was trying to work on her barking quieter and more talking than her full out, head shaking bark. We will keep working, I know she will get it as soon as I figure out a way to target that type of bark. Anyone else worked on this before? I’m all for ideas on how to target the quieter talking. I would like to do the hand signal I use as well as the “shhhh” you hear me use. But maybe that’s confusing her?
And here is a little blooper clip
She has this problem quite often when we are working on things. I was using soft treats (chicken pieces) to avoid this problem. I ended up helping her out in the end. She probably didn’t appreciate the help as it involved me running my finger all through her lips and mouth trying to dislodge whatever piece of food was bugging her. In the end I don’t know how we got it, or where it was but we were able to move on and record the video you saw above.
I hope you enjoy the videos, it’s something I hope to continue to do as time allows. What tricks do your dogs know?
