All four paws are off the floor. He can do this, it seems, indefinatley. He does it on command as well. Do other sheepies do this?
|Thats hilarious. My boy doens't jump, but I've seen both his sister turn into grasshoppers almost instantaneously!! It's really amazing how high they can jump. Sorry I don't have any advice for it!|
|Oh! My!!!! How cute..maybe he has some (bouncing) beardie blood in him???? He looks so happy!!!!!!|
|Genevieve jumps sometimes when she's getting too excited. I give her the "down" command and make her calm down a bit. I have had a couple of foster dogs who were much worse about it than she is, though. It's quite humorous to watch.|
|Harry's answer to everything is jumping. That is why I took him to agility.|
|Oddly enough, both my sheepies jump more than my little poodle! They both jump up about 4 feet straight up.
But my favorite jump was Ana leaping over 15 feet of my backyard to land on Teddy. Fabulous aim and very graceful! I think the cats have been training her on the sly at night.
|I always thought it was a sheepie thing. I was surprised to find out it is a beardie thing -although you can never convince me they don't share some heritage
My Max used to jump stright up in the air with all four feet over and over and over, probably up until less than a year before he died at 13. Marley and Morgan are starting to do it more often now at 2 than when they were younger, although arguably alot of it has been trained out of them. Max was a rescue with little or no formal training before I got him and none afterwards.
|I haven't tried to get Frankie to stop doing it. He never touches me when he jumps....just straight up!!! In fact I have made it one of his tricks. He does it on command with a hand signal or verbal signal. He gives high five, sits, lays very abruptly (too funny), stay, of course, and the very useful inside voice. I give him a finger signal for the quiet bark (speak) and he says "woof", very gently. I find "his" tricks are easier to continue with. If he already does it then it's much easier to repeat. I've considered agility with Frank but he is a big wussy. He won't jump over anything, and I can just forget about the tunnel, he would never do that. But he is smart and he needs a job. I have been looking for a place to start herding testing but I can't find any sheep here in Peoria. I'll keep looking.|
|Our groomer owned/bred standard poodles. When we'd come for a visit they'd see Jake coming from their run behind her shop and they'd both start jumping straight up and down... quite impressive to see big standard poodles in full(?) groomed curls bouncing like that!
Almost as good as seeing Frankie's ears and fall flapping like wings!
|Clyde doesn't even know what the word "jump" means. These days, he's too big to get off the ground anyway.|
|Frankie is so cute...yes Violet does the bouncing too. I call it acting like Tigger. lol She doesn't do it to often but when she does I can't help but laugh. Give Frankie a big hug for me.|
|derby can't even jump on the bed|
|Guinness can jump stright up too! We were at a dog event that had a live band and the speakers screeched and he jumped stright up on a ladies table I knew her so we just picked up all her stuff and put it back. She said she never saw a dog jump like that! The pictures are great!!!!|
|Chauncey is a jumper, we get a good laugh out of it. He can jump, 3ft off the floor and spin completely around. He will do it when we are playing in the house. Bob encourages me to get him to do it.|
|Glad to see Hazel is not the only "Tigger" out there.|
|Miss Rags also has Tigger as one of her nicknames. Anytime she's excited she bounces around like she has springs in her legs.|
|Fiona does this at feeding time. All four dogs have their little ritual...hers is to get in "her place" and she springs straight in the air probably 4 feet easy repeatedly till I get close enough with her dish. She know that she has to sit down for me to lower it. Too cute to even ask her not to...|
