There are many cool tricks but I really like the walking handstand, so I started investigating how to efficiently train this to my dog.
A watched this clicker-training video (Youtube, "Train your dog the walking handstand!"). It mentions progressing slowly: the dog puts his hind paws on something progressively higher (e.g. one or more books). That makes sense to me and the dog needs time to get his balance right and to have enough strength on the muscles he need.
So my idea was to start as early as possible (my puppy is 5 months old), that would be a fun exercise for him.
However the video advices not to train that to puppies or before the dog is well over a year old.
Is this a good advice and could this be detrimental to the growth of the dog ?
