ESBC Week 3: Blanket Roll
The above gif should say it all. Your dog has to roll themselves (burrito style) into a blanket. This one might require teaching more than 1 command depending on how you tackle it.

If you run into trouble - post or ask a question on Tumblr! If we can’t help, someone out there will know!
Tips: Remember to keep training sessions short (no longer than 15 minutes) and fun! This is play for everyone.
How You Can Show Off on Sunday:
If you have Tumblr, and are going to upload to your blog. Please use the tag: ESBC . We have been liking and reblogging all the posts using that particular tag and will continue to do so through-out the challenge.
If you don’t have Tumblr, we will turn on Submit on Sunday so that you can post to Emma or us a link/pictures/video of your tricks. If you want you can also leave a comment on Disqus.
(Edit: If you know of another video or helpful link - let me know! This one was a little hard to find resources on.)

Y’all ready? Trick #3!

First on behalf of Nicole (Emma’s mom) and myself, I just wanted to congratulate everyone that has participated in ESBC so far. The first week was super successful and it was great to see everyone’s pups improve through-out the week. Great job, everyone!

You guys, I was really proud of how many corgis participated in the weekly challenge! It is fun teaching your corgi a new trick (and at times, really frustrating). But once they have it, you AND your poopster feel really great. 
Sit pretty might be hard for the long ones out there. Pudge still doesn’t really have the muscle strength to “sit pretty” after months of trying (he’s really, really long). But he’s getting it! So don’t give up! Good luck!

I started this challenge with Pudge today. He got it. But not with just a command, with me shoving delicious lamb loaf into his snout. It’s HARD to get a corgi to bow without them plopping their butts down! Legs so short! BODY SO LONG!

The reflections on Cannon Beach were pretty phenomenal, so it wasn’t too difficult to get good shots of the dogs on the beach. This was taken toward the end of our stent at the beach, and Anubis was still full of pent-up energy. Photo taken with a Pentax 100mm macro lens in Cannon Beach, OR.
