I have found that just before his dinner is the best time to practice commands with Eko. He is awake, alert and most importantly – hungry!  If I have a new trick to teach Eko I always try to introduce it before a meal as well.  He is always responsive, attentive and acts on commands confidently.  With one major exception.I taught Eko to roll over when he was a little pup.  He would whip himself over and jump up in one swift motion.  Unfortunately, the bigger he got, the harder it became to roll over without taking out an endtable or some other piece of furniture in the process. Even though were now in an apartment, I still work on rolling over with Eko – we just need to budget a bit of extra time.  And space!  Check it out:

    you taught him well…you do need to give him the entire room to do roll over!! my late yellow lab could’ve only managed to roll on one side and pawed his 2 legs in the air as a gesture to humor me whenever i’ve asked him to do roll over, i gave him treats anyway, for a 99 pounds lab to roll over was isurmountable. Eko and Will are a fantastic team in my book.

  4. You are great Eko. I’m not “food motivated” I’m just greedy :o) One thing I never do: I don’t shake or give them five – not for the best treats :o)

  5. Yay, Eko! You’re brilliant! Mom tries to teach me to roll, but I turn to stone, every time.

    Love and licks,

    Great job Eko! Thanks for the reminder too. When we were young we did that training before meals but Mom has forgotten all about it. We may start that up again!

  7. We do our training during mealtimes too so that the human remembers to train Donna! Haha! But we know less tricks than Eko for sure 😀 Have a good weekend!

  8. Fabulous! Clever Eko! 🙂
