Your tip is right on the nose (no pun intended) Kokos just love to do it!  another trick that I would like to teach her is going to bed... when they take the blanket and wrap themselves with it.  Do you mind sharing the process?

Peter I just watched your video. What an awesome job you have done! I just started teaching Jackson the jumping through the arms tonight. He responded really well. I was just thinking last week I would like to try this with him and was thinking about getting a hula hoop to start it. But now with your method I see an easier way to do it. Thanks for sharing your simplified step by step method.

I recently taught my daughter's dog to do this in 3 sessions over 45 minutes.

Normally, I'd recommend going slower and sounder over a few days in baby steps.
