That is the cue that makes the most sense! BUT, well - I'm already using circle-movements from my hand to send him away on a volte! That's why I gotta think about it! :lol:

Do you think he knows the differnt between a big circle with your hand and a litlle circle with a pointing finger?

Hard to explain with words..
but that's the differents I make :)

Eventually, yes. But not yet - we've only been doing this for 3 months!

That's part of what's so funny - he's learning more movements and he's not learning many cues! He gets bored (and so do I) with reviewing what he knows, so we do something else, and then I get to scratch my head for another new cue!

And on different days he does different things on the same cue! It's hilarious and chaotic - lots of fun, though!

Thank you all for your nice comments and contributions!!

And Glen, don´t think about a cue too much. If you just do what you feel like doing and what works best, the perfect cue for the two of you will just emerge naturally - and develop over time.

Really? I can just relax and the cues will sort themselves out? That takes a lot of hassle off my mind! 8)
