Lifting a leg trick

Twightlight is coming earlier these days which means...more time for NEW TRICKS!

I've wanted to teach this for a while, but it's taken forever to try to capture this position until I realized that Daizy offers it up when I dry off her back feet.  I think she lifts her leg because it tickles when I run my hand down to her feet :)  Whatever works!  There are multiple  benefits to teaching this cue!

1-drying off feet and examining back pads is easier
2-it'll be funny when I put it on verbal cue to watch friends think I'm asking my dogs to pee:)

One of my agility instructors showed off this trick with her BC and I remember laughing out loud. It seems so simple but I'm still working on it with my dog. Good job!

That's funny! I was worried about which word to choose to put it on cue ...and to make sure it's not the same word I say to actually ...to do business

" Whizz "is what I've chosen, sounds nothing like "quick pee" what I say now to do get your business done quickly.

thanks for the story!
