This week I [ATA’s founder Ryan Cartlidge] thought I would share a fun behaviour I recently trained with my dog Fibi!
It all started when the awesome Lisa Longo shared a video in the Animal Training Academy’s members-only FaceBook group – of her dog Marley telling her a secret [see below]!

What about you – have you trained this behaviour? What’s the funnest behaviour you’ve ever trained? We would love to see it – please let us know & share your videos! – You can leave a comment below!
