My turn to steal your bandwidth!

I've been trying to get video of my hounds, but...not much luck. Here, I'm trying to get Fingal to show off his newly learned "Speak!" and "Whisper!" tricks-he's not so good with whisper!:D

And then, the video turns into what all of them do-puppy wrassling. Sigh!

Click on the picture to see it.

I need to get better lighting and an assistant, I think. They both have an entire set of tricks they will run through-sit, paw, nose, down, speak and whisper-but not if I get the camera out. :D Just like kids, eh, they have to show off for the camera!

Aww, it's like Jemma and Boo when they were younger. So adorable. :love:

I love the transcript:
Can you speak?
Ruff Ruff!
Can you whisper?
Ruff Ruff!
:D
And I love how when you tell one to sit, the other one is all "rooo don't tell my friend what to do.":D

Without the camera, they can both get the difference between speak and whisper; add a treat and they are prodigies ;) . But the sight of the camera gets them all squirrely :frustrated: . They even try to bargain and con me with perfect whispers when they want something I have or want to d something they're not supposed to. :p

Here's a slightly better video-brighter room. Fingal, however, quickly decides to check out the view from the other side....

Wow, does that ever get dark and choppy once on-line. It's so much brighter on my computer.

That's really funny. I wish I could get Jesse to do the shake command, but she flat out refuses it.

hahah so cute
why is it that everytime to ask for whisper they end up playing together?? I think something might've gone wrong in training :rolleyes:

I don't think it comes through in the video, but I knew he was about to do something just before he jumped up on the couch. He had the devil look-a little gleam in his eye that lets you know he's thinking up something...so he jumped up next to me and peered at the screen on the back of the camera, like "What's so interesting here Mom? It's just a box." :crazy:

It's the end of every video attempt-no matter what trick I ask for :D . Bronwyn just decides "Enough!" and jumps on Fingal. I think it's because he's getting attention, since he is more likely to do tricks for praise, so I focus on him. :o Bronny gets jealous.

She's actually far quicker on Speak and Whisper than he is, but it requires a treat. She rarely does tricks for free! So, I guess she is a proponent of TNSTAAFL training, and has me trained very well!

Yeah, where are Bronwyn's tricks? Why does Fingal get to be the star? :frustrated: :D

Hee, hee, Prin-Bronny is such a diva, she won't perform unless the conditions are perfect!;)

Here we are-with better light and an assistant (my daughter's friend), Miss Bronwyn goes through her paces.

I love how Fingal sees the treats and joins in too. Like ooo, you're getting paid I want some too!
