That's just brilliant. She looks like she is really enjoying herself, her tail is wagging the whole time. I love the little break for a scratch half way through:jmp:
How long did it take to train Beans to remember all the moves? She is great.

That's amazing!
A 9 month old cavalier who can do all that without jumping up.
Very impessive!

I was thinking about Beans, and how brilliant she is. She kind of makes up for all the negative health related things we read and hear about all the time. She is a great example of a Cavalier puppy.
It's just great that our Cavaliers can shine in many other ways.:lotsaluv:

thanks for all the nice comments:D
beansy is a little star, happy, funny and very eager to work. exactly what i had hoped for in a puppy. :)

she did this kind of heelwork sinde she was about 4 months old. i really love working with her.
here some of her 'normal' heelwork. she works without verbal cues, treats, comments or luring.
her cue for starting to walk is my ribcage expanding on inhale, we take the first step on exhale. for turns and direction changes she focuses on my left leg. if i move forward with the right leg first, she just stays in a 'stand' position.

isn't she clever...? :-)

But then you did your homework and were prepared to wait for exactly the puppy you wanted (and if I remember rightly, travelled some distance to get her) - so glad she has worked out. Pity more Cavalier owners don't take so much trouble.

I LOVED watching that! Her tail never stopped wagging and the way she looked up at you made it obvious how much fun she's having. I have no idea how, but I want to try that with Holly!!!!

Thank you for sharing. You and Beans are absolutely amazing!

I loved the way she hugs up so close to your body and her paws on your feet at the end of the routine was adorable. She's a very smart little puppy that has a fabulous trainer!

That is brilliant renate! Not only is Beans a star, you are a brilliant trainer. if only I had a little bit of rhythm and grace I think this would be great fun to train.
