JOY Dogs Orion and Yola learn to skateboard

Another lockdown project was learning to skateboard.  It has been slow progress but the dogs are willing and can now put three paws on the board and are learning to push with the last paw then put it on the board (while I am pulling the board).  We started off on a really small board and on the grass so it didn’t go too fast and they have become accustomed to the movement.  We now practice at a nearby shopping centre which has a smooth surface and have upgraded to a large board, made for us by a friend. There are videos on my facebook page.
