The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Bang Bang

Hey, hey, hey, look what I learned to do! I can do "Bang!" like Sunshade now, woo hoo! Dad taught me to do it and it didn't really take that long. We started off learning it from being in a "down" with dad using a treat to lure me onto my side. I had to lie still until I was told "OK" which is my cue that I'm allowed to move from whatever position I'm in.

He added in the "Bang" command when I was in the correct position & used a signal of 2 fingers pointing like a gun to get me to roll onto my side from being in a "down" position.

Once I understood that from a "down" I had to go on my side when dad did the "bang", we moved to doing it from a "sit". I picked this bit up pretty quickly. Hey, I'm an intelligent young boy, what can I say?!

From there we moved to doing it from a "stand" for the full effect. Like Sunshade I have improvised and added my own "dying swan" wobbling effects and grumbling "aaaahhh, I've been shot" noises. Who reckons Oscar deserves an Oscar, hehehe?

So here it is for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy. No Oscar's were harmed in the making of these films! Sorry they are a bit dark, but it was brrr freezing in the garden!

As my KC name is Sherifs Sundance Kid, I think it's a kind of appropriate cowboy stylee trick to have learned. When we go to my Airedale Club's fun day in September, I can put on my lovely "Woody" outfit (!) & do this trick - mum reckons I'll definitely win a prize!

Have an excellent weekend everyone!

Love licks,

That is way too cute Oscar. U win the best "dogtor" award while Sunshade gets the "dogtress" award. Make sense?

MaMa says the way U fall to the ground is hilarious. She loves it!

I was so relieved when you popped up.What a very clever, talented boy you are, my HERO...sigh! oooh I do wish I could sneak you over here and take you out for treats...I like to do a terrier shake dance on two feet when anticipating treats and cocktails..I think that's easy to do when you're smaller like me and not a strapping young man like you...have a lovely lie in this weekend and dream of me

Hey Oscar

I'd rather watch mum do the bang stuff. I'll see if I can train her and send you a video.

Ermm .. forgot something .. slow mum hasn't worked out the video thing yet.

Love from your friend, Hammer

FANTASTIC work Oscar... you just need some spaghetti western movie music!!!!


Lorenza said...

Hi Oscar. What a great trick! Sure you deserved your treats. I don't do any trick. My mom tries but I don't get it. I get treats, but she doesn't get the trick!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Sophie Brador said...

Good work Oscar! Now if you can teach your dad bang, bang, that would really be a trick! Those humans are so damn hard to train.

Liberty Doo Dah said...

Hey Oscar!
I can do BANG! too! May be I'll post my version! You stay down MUCH longer than me! Mum has to shoot me twice! hehehee!
Awesome job!

T-man said...

You and Miss Sunshade are so smart to learn that trick. My mom doesn't even try with me.


Billy said...

Wow are you ever smart Oscar, playing dead, I could never do that because I'd be too anxious to get my treat:)

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Sunshade said...

Oh WOW Oscar!!!!! I'm truly impressed, you are one smart boy!

Hey, do you think they'll ever need two Airedales to play dead in a movie?????

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
