And we're back for another fun trick! We did back up last time and learned to wave, but now let's bring out the still easy but fancy stuff, hula-hoop tricks!

Did you know there are over 20 tricks you can train with a hoop?!

Let's start with the basics. Bonus for anyone with nervous dogs, go slower and give big rewards for just moving towards the hoop, and you can even build in confidence! For these dogs, the goal is not to get through the hoop, just to be brave and get close to it. 

Cat lovers. You can train the cats to do this too! If you want more information, I have an online course on clicker training for dogs and cats that goes through some tricks, including hoop jumps for cats: go here to learn more. 

Have a look at the video below and enjoy! You can get the hoops at most dollar stores.
