Not Shelly, but I taught both my dogs by luring and clicking, and then
adding an "under" cue. Both of them only know how to go under my right
leg, though, as I never taught the other leg, so we don't do the walking
and weaving thing.


I didn't use a clicker, just the word, "Thru" and a small tidbit of
treat in both hands (One to guide from front, the other to "pull out"
from the back--yes, I'm sure I looked like a total idiot trying to
do it!). Luring, I suppose you can call it that, but no free hand for
clicking--which is how I wanted to do it.


How would this be useful for agility?


I was thinking along limbering up exercises. Sort of like doing
practice swings.

Thanks to you both.
