My Blind Doxie Nono Got New Trick “Figure 8”

My sweet blind doxie Nono got new trick “Figure 8”. It’s very difficult to understand and do the trick without the sight!

Nono might be the only blind dog in the world to be able to do the trick. 🙂
I’m very proud of her and really happy to enjoy training with her!

    Looks awesome!!

    Ginger and I worked on this trick last fall. It took her awhile to get the hang of it and she’s still not perfect with it. So, it’s a harder trick even when the dog can see.

    Nono looks like she completely understands what she’s suppose to do.

      I’m happy to hear that form YOU!
      Thank you Mary! 🙂

      Nono lost her sight but has been developing her other senses and abilities through R+ training, and loves clicker training (Clicker training is her hobby. lol!)
      So she can get over difficult challenges for her.

    Wowzers! I’d say she is the only one for sure. Nono doesn’t miss a beat. My dog Shiva had difficulties learning this one as well, Nono has put her to shame.

    Good for you both. What an amazing relationship the two of you have.

      Hi Kristine 🙂

      Thank you for agreeing with me! hahaha
      Shiva must be do a more beautiful “figure 8” than Nono! if she got the way!
      I think the trick is a bore and pain for dogs with the exception of dogs who nothing makes happier than to keep on moving 🙂

      p.s.
      Shiva is so cute. She looks a lot alike my friend’s dog Sorako 🙂
