Learning to touch, stand and jump up

Mom finally got a video made so here is my Tricky T-Day training for Ludo. First, mom made a special stool for me this morning so I could do these tricks. It was originally her "under the computer desk foot stool" but it had a wooden surface that I found a bit slippery so she found some material and padding and made it non slippy. We started with the touch command which is one I have known since I was a young pupster, so the only new thing about that was touching the stool. Next came standing on the stool and this is something new I learned today (did I mention the stool is wobbly - it is!!) As I was doing so well with that, mom thought she would also teach me 'jump-up' which is where I jump up and sit on the stool. It may look easy but getting all of BIG me to sit on that on that teeny tiny stool was asking a lot. Mom apologizes for the lead but as you can see my attention span isn't very good. Mom has had all the windows and doors open today and there is so much going on outside that I was constantly wanting to go outside to bark and let everyone know I am enjoying the cool weather. We have next weeks trick already planned. Thanks for watching.



  1. Hi Reilly
    That was pretty impressive work! We didn't think there would be room on the stool for your whole self but we seem to remember Ludo on a chocolate tin!!!
    You shelties are sooooo clever.
    Good work.

  2. Yay, Reilly! You're doing Tricky T-Day! I like the stool your mom made for your tricks! You are doing really well and can probably come up with all kinds of tricks to do with the stool. Good Job!

  3. Woohoo Reilly! You so clever to learn that so fast! The stool a very clever idea too. We loved your Mom's accent!
    I will add you to my list.
    ~lickies, Ludo

  4. Well done! You're always so calm and collected... unlike Josh! :)

  5. Way to go Reilly! Do I remember that I saw a long time ago, a video of you on your treadmill!? Good job with the stool this week! So nice of Mom to make that for you! You learn so fast!
