Dog Blog Post #1147

This trick is a Henry (left) specialty, as his muzzle/head proportions work out better for Cookie balancing.

It rarely shows in pictures, but he has a bit broader and shorter muzzle, with a more pronounced stop (that spot between eyes where muzzle joins the head is more vertical.)


Henry has the patience of a Saint and will sit there balancing away for as long as I need him to, while Zachary is eager to move on to the next task.

That said, Zachary kept up with his nephew tonight in the Cookie Count, although I was careful to always stack Henry's Cookies first.

And yes, there is a human element to this trick.

Finding nice flat Cookies to start with is a must, as is making sure the boys' heads are in a good position before placing the Cookies.

Henry's muzzle was made to hold Cookies, but Zachary's takes a bit of adjusting to get things balanced.
