Hello and welcome to the newest section of the forum. In here, we will be posting regular challenges for you to take part in. Sometimes they will be serious, sometimes fun tricks. The person issuing the challenge will create a video demonstrating the stages to get to the final result, with different variations for different stages of ability where appropriate. The idea is that, over the timescale given (usually a month), you try to train that trick to your dog, video and post the results in the thread. We'll welcome discussion about any issues you're having training certain parts, and as many progress updates as you wish! I'm really excited about this new section of the forum, and hope that it can introduce a bit of fun, trying different things with our dogs. The mods have a long list of things we'll try to include over the coming months, but if you have any ideas of your own, then please do jot them down here. Also, if you'd like to submit your own challenge, let us know and we'll get you set up! We'd especially welcome any challenges to do with any entry-level behaviours for different dog activities, such as agility, flyball etc. The first challenge will be coming this weekend, so watch this space!
