Bailey: So far we've been working on tricks. shes very responsive and after 3 days she knows most. i only have to say it once or just do a gesture. Her best ones are: Paw (paw in hand) Up (stretch and reach) Up up (stand up) spin (turn around), sit (sit up with her paws in a begging form) and climb. Shes reall responsive but refuses to do it with an audience. I'm glad that after three days shes learned tho.
Mocha: Mocha knows a few tricks after 2 days of training. Her best ones are:

Today is day 16 of training my little piggy, and I couldn't be more proud!
After about a week of little to no progress, I think it has clicked. She will now stand on her hind legs about 25% of the time... ON COMMAND. Without any food bribes, hand gestures, etc. Just the word. I'm so happy! Of course, there won't be 100% success in the beginning, but we're getting there.

Marceline is sick. Her eyes are watery and her nose and ears are dirty. She also almost vomited today. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow to get her checked ASAP. I hope it's nothing serious, but we just have to wait and find out.
For my first few blog entries, I'll post my progress in training my little piggy, Hershey.
Today is Day 2 of training her to "jump" (stand on her hind legs) and I've noticed a little progress. She seems to stand up and grab her parsley more quickly than yesterday when I hold it above her. I think she's starting to realize that when I say "jump" and hold veggies above her head, she needs to stand up to get them.
I ordered a training clicker on Amazon,
