Holy Cow it looks like she flies onto the ball. What can't Mira do?
Still haven't got one. Was waiting to see if they went on post holiday sale and then forgot.

Cute video! We have been using ours. I would love more ideas too.

I never got Kayla to jump onto the ball, but she will get on from the couch. We do most of the same stuff that you are doing except Kayla is not as fast as Mira is on your video. I guess I have some more work to do there. I was kind of wondering what to do too so I just started moving the ball and rewarding her for keeping herself on the top (very small movements so far) or I just lessen the amount that I am keeping the ball in place by just a fraction and it is amazing how much harder she has to work to stabilize herself.

Here are a few video clips from yesterday

I haven't got ours yet. I really want it though. I just now need to find time to go to Dick's and get one. No ball for Xmas.

Jessica,
I finally tried this. I wasn't to sure I could get Winter to do it. She really doesn't like things moving under her feet, but tonight was the second night and she had all four feet on the ball and was sitting on it. My ball seems smaller than the one in your video and I need to get it a bit better inflated. What a great dark days work out.

By the way, I always thought because of Winter's aversion to things moving under her feet we would never do well in agility. But if I can find the time and with the right treats ...........

Yay! We are back on the ball now too, started after daylight savings. I try to get the dogs on there 3 days a week or so. Barley only does his front feet, but I still think that is good for him.

I am sure you could conquer the teeter! Barley was terrible, could never even get him on a wobble board. He still hates it, but we have managed!
