Great job!!! Lava is so enthusiastic about her tricks, really fun to watch! And that hug was just too cute! Great balance! I have two tricks videos, Tricks for a great bond and Tricks for better thinking skills -- let me know which one to send!

I don’t think my graduation videos will be ready for awhile but I did want to thank Silvia for her sincerity, immense knowledge, great eye, careful analysis of my dogs and my training and guiding me so well in the right direction. Silvia, you are a fabulous teacher with a myriad of excellent ideas.
I also want to thank all the participants for the educational videos, and intelligent questions and comments throughout. This was a fun and inspiring class, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Happy Training everyone!

Louise you are not alone with being some time off getting your graduation video ready!!
But I totally agree it was a really fun class and Silvia your insight and tips and help has been very inspiring!!
And it has been fantastic watching everybody’s videos of their training. I’m looking forward to seeing all the graduation videos, as well as making my own one.

Thank you all! It was really lots of fun to work with you all, what a cool group! I sure hope to see many of you in future classes or if not, you can always drop a video on public pages of this site. Puppy Class pages will stay open for reading for a while too.

I’ll be a week or so until I can do a graduation video (have to wash my muddy dog, for one thing) but I wanted to thank you all for such a fun class. My only regret is that I didn’t join sooner and as a participant. I can’t believe how many new tricks we learned in such a short time. And today I got three standalone sit ups using the knee method, our first ones ever! Never thought we would be able to get that one! I wish this same class could just keep going indefinitely. But I’m going to join Foundations and am already in RC, and then will do Advanced Tricks once Foundations is over. I’m addicted! Thanks, Silvia!

I think it will take me at least a couple of weeks to get Papu’s graduation video together… But thank you Silvia for the great teaching we’ve had during this time!!! The whole course really exceeded my expectations! I have the same feeling as Diane, wishing this course could just go on an on… But I hope we’ll be joining the advanced tricks at some point. And if everything goes according to my plans, you might again see me at the puppy class with a new puppy. Although that might take a while still…
LoLaBu on January 24, 2012 at 17:23
Thank you all for a great feedback, much appreciated!!! And wow, good luck with your puppy plans! What breed this time? Looking forward to see more of Papu too, he is such a funny boy!
Heini Viitamäki on January 25, 2012 at 07:21
Well, I’m thinking of Danish Swedish Farmdog but we might as well end up with other Swedish Vallhund. Somehow these small Nordic breeds appeal to me…
LoLaBu on January 25, 2012 at 17:13
Cool! It’s sure a nice change with all the BCs around
Pascal HERMANN on January 24, 2012 at 21:25
Hi Silvia and classmates !
At begin of last October, I can’t imagine that it could be possible to learn
as many tricks than we do these last 3 months. Luring (with food) was my only way to learn anything before, but now, I know that all I will learn my dog with “shapping” is more efficient and stable, and easier for
complexe behavior ! Also thanks Silvia for learning us heeling, that you pratice very fun with yours dogs !
I will plan for your Advanced Tricks Class for next winter !
Thanks to all participants that helps me to progress with their vidoes and comments !
Silvia, I will recommend your puppy tricks class, but if you have too much success, you will have to be cloned !!!
Now I’m really impatient to learn your “Agility as tricks” phylosophy …
LoLaBu on January 24, 2012 at 23:55
You&Garlic sure came a long way, great job! See you in Foundations!!! And yes, with the new RC class just starting, I sometimes do feel a need for a clone
Heini Viitamäki on January 25, 2012 at 07:24
You really did a great job with Garlic! It’s been great to watch your videos as Garlic is so smart and enthusiastic!
Verena on January 25, 2012 at 01:09
Posting Bisous graduation video makes me happy and sad at the same time… I had so much fun in this class and I smiled a lot when going through the videos and putting it together -- but it also marks the end of some fabulous months
Thank to everybody, I really hope I will meet some of you sooner or later in other classes -- and Silvia, I hope to see you live in Germany again !
Silvia, thanks for the download gift! I would love to have one of the the tricks videos -- which one would you recommend if the dog has gone through Puppy Class already?
Diane Whitney on January 25, 2012 at 01:39
SO CUTE! Love the ending!
Louise Hoelscher on January 25, 2012 at 02:16
That is a FANTASTIC video Venera!!! Bisou is a superstar
Oops, I mean Verena! I typed too fast
Natalie Bayless on January 25, 2012 at 06:24
LoLaBu on January 25, 2012 at 11:06
Wow, what a great made video! And what a well mastered tricks, great job! To decide for one of the videos, the best is to check the trailers as they show all the tricks included and then choose the one that has tricks that look more fun… I love thinking tricks, but we did a couple of those tricks here, while the other video covers all different tricks.
Verena on January 31, 2012 at 00:24
I would like to have “Tricks for great bond” -- it would be really funny to teach a Tibetian to hold its tail
LoLaBu on January 31, 2012 at 16:46
In your mail!
Kathy on January 25, 2012 at 14:10
BRAVO, Bisou & Verena!!! I think you’ll graduate with high honors!!!
Renata Janicka on January 26, 2012 at 16:54
Bisou is just a Super Star!!!
Megan on February 4, 2012 at 01:14
That was AWESOME!!!! Bisou is amazing!!!
Natalie Bayless on January 25, 2012 at 02:31
What to do?! Which DVD to choose?! Foundations? Advanced Tricks? RC? Tricks for Thinking? Tricks for Bonding? Heeling? Camp? Oh dear! HELP!!
I KNOW!!!!!! Let’s just keep this class going while I make up my mind!:-) It won’t take me more than another six months or so!
LoLaBu on January 25, 2012 at 13:08
How about ready-Steady-GO! ? I would say Foundations now, RC in May in Advanced Tricks when you have some extra time
Natalie Bayless on January 25, 2012 at 17:16
Well -- that’s the real plan, but I’m really going to miss this class, so I’ll just whine a little first.
Chandra Crowe on January 26, 2012 at 23:13
Thanks for the fantastic class Silvia! We are having a lot of fun with all that we have learned. I would love a link to Tricks for a Better Bond. Thank you!
All the best to you all!
LoLaBu on January 27, 2012 at 00:06
Did I miss your graduation video? I need to check what you have learned
Renata Janicka on January 28, 2012 at 22:19
Last weeks were great thanks to you Silvia and all of you -- Classmates! Your great videos and detailed questions were opportunity to read Silvia’s answers, full of flexible methods of teaching our dogs and tips how to teach them. Huge thanks for that! It was a pleasure being auditor -- everything was so clearly showed I didn’t have to add any additional questions
Spot is unfortunately few weeks behind due to limping for almost 3 weeks and castration so we have to work through lesson 6 (including limping ) and master previous tricks therefore I will be checking all comments again -- so for me it isn’t The End;)
But anyway here is our graduation video with almost all we’ve learned so far here
Meet my boy and his younger ‘sister’ who arrived to us from a shelter in December:
Verena on January 29, 2012 at 22:58
Hi Renata, what a cute little doggy -- thanks for sharing this with us, I hope Spot doesn’t have any more problems with limping!
LoLaBu on January 30, 2012 at 12:52
Great video, great training! Very cool to finally meet Spot, he is sure enjoying his tricks! And wow, what a handstand!!! Let me know which video you want for graduation!
Renata Janicka on January 30, 2012 at 13:31
Thanks a lot! We have much to master but after that we surely join Advanced tricks. To be honest I would be happy to take some agility class but have too small backyard to put a tunnel there :/ Anyway I have some pcv jumps and may train cik&cap at least. Are those also on Advanced tricks? I have to choose between 2 dvds -- Cik&Cap and Ready-Steady-Go as I’m interested in both of subjects Could you suggest me anything please?
PS. You’ve surprised me (the auditor) by the gift so much! I didn’t really believe it may happened, again THANKS A LOT!
LoLaBu on January 30, 2012 at 22:35
How much room do you have? Tunnels can be easily replaced with jumps, I just like tunnels for extra fun I mostly use really short ones, mine are 3m, so when put in a corner, they don’t take much room. If you decide for Foundations, most Cik&cap is covered there already, so I would advice Ready-Steady-GO! then -- and if not, go with Cik&Cap and teach it in your yard! Cik&Cap is not part of Advanced Trick no.
Renata Janicka on January 30, 2012 at 23:45
Tunnels make my dog quite speedy so I’m afraid he can splash on a fence, after a tunnel I can put only one jump and ask for cik as no place to run there or even throw a ball. I can put two tunnels but then I will stand in the middle and switch hands only thinking how to stop him I’ve tried two jumps in a line and he needs definitely more room to catch the ball/prize. He’s a terrier, he will splash without even thinking
So Cik&Cap dvd will be probably better idea for now. Thanks!
LoLaBu on January 31, 2012 at 16:45
Kathy on January 30, 2012 at 13:50
So cool to see Spot! He’s so cute & smart! Great job with the tricks & making the video!
Kathy on January 29, 2012 at 21:10
Hi Silvia & classmates,
Here is our graduation video. sorry it’s so long but I wanted to include puppy clips when Zephyr first started this class & I guess I got carried away! He was just so cute with all his puppy fuzz!
Thank you, Silvia for this wonderful class! We’ve had tons of fun & learned so much! Hope to see you in either the Advanced Tricks class or Foundations…haven’t decided which one yet.
And thanks to all my classmates! It was great watching your videos! Hope to see you again in Silvia’s classes!
Kathy & Zephyr
Louise Hoelscher on January 29, 2012 at 22:54
That video was a joy to watch Kathy!!! Beautiful scenery, great music and so sweet to see Zephyr growing from a cute fuzzy puppy to a handsome dog.
Verena on January 29, 2012 at 22:56
I enjoyed every single minute -- wonderful video!
Natalie Bayless on January 30, 2012 at 19:14
LoLaBu on January 30, 2012 at 20:17
Beautiful video, so cool to see puppy Zephyr grow and learn! He sure mastered many tricks! And what a beautiful heeling! Let me know which video you want for graduation!
Kathy on January 31, 2012 at 00:35
Thanks, Silvia. Well, we still have quite a few tricks to work on. Never did get to the backwards fig. 8 but the heeling is getting more fun to do with Zephyr. He’s starting to offer it on our daily hikes…too funny!
I think your Ready-Steady-Go video would be great. Thank You!!!
And thank you classmates for all your kind comments!
LoLaBu on January 31, 2012 at 16:47
Well, it would be boring if you mastered all already! Video sent.
Kathy on February 1, 2012 at 12:03
Yep, it’s the process of training tricks & watching them learn that’s the most fun!
Ohhh…your video is AWESOME!!! I just watched it…beautiful scenery & I love your philosophy on conditioning & training dogs! It makes so much sense & you make it FUN for the dogs!!! THANK YOU!!!
LoLaBu on February 1, 2012 at 17:32
Great, glad you liked it! We sure had tons of fun making it!
