Too cute! Thanks for sharing! I tried teaching Squeaky to spin. He just kinda looked at me like, "Are you giving me that treat or not?" LOL

I have two others that can spin too, but they took a lot longer to teach. Muffin got it in 10 mins! I'm working on 'roll over' now, but it's proving to be quite difficult!

Sitting in my car in a parking lot laughing uncontrollably! People pass by and give me weird looks... :)

I've been using yogurt drops, but I break up a single drop into lots of really tiny pieces for training. I also don't treat them every single time they get a trick right, and I only train once a week for a bit of weekend fun :)

Thanks guys! :) He seems to enjoy the challenge. It's been a good way for us to bond as Muffin has always had an introverted personality compared to his rowdy brother's. Quite shy and not keen on being handled. He's really come onto his own since we started doing this stuff, popcorning and racing about the room and jumping up for cuddles. Its been quite a turn around!
