I got to see some of Kyra Sundance's tricks while she was here in San Diego, and my favorite trick by far was this highly complex one :)

Use the weather to your advantage:
Depending on the dog, there can be an extreme difference in behavior in relation to different temperatures. So use it to your advantage to yield faster results.
Hot weather- Work on separation anxiety, handling issues, reactivity, and any training situations where you want your dog to be calm and relaxed. However keep in mind that you don’t want your dog to overheat. An example: Working on separation anxiety with a Chihuahua by leaving the dog alone in a room lying in a patch of sun, rather than on a chilly evening. Or counter conditioning your dog to nail trimming in the yard in the sun while he’s laying in your lap spread out.
Cold weather- use the evening zoomies time to your advantage to work on a trick that needs speed and enthusiasm.

“Think of your dog’s repertoire of behaviors as keys on a piano. To create variety you will need to play songs of different length, tempo, and tune- Never play the same song repetitively. Never play all the notes just because they are there!”- kikopup

Come on a safari with me!!!!
Pamela Johnson and I : the SD Canine Freestylers were helping out at a 4 H event teaching children how to teach their dogs in a humane respectful and safe way, as well as how to teach them some cool tricks!
At the next event booth over, they were teaching the kids how to teach their dogs to stand on a surf board. Splash and Pam's dog Izzie gave it a try!!!
A fun day was had by all!
(it was a very muddy day- we had some unusual San Diego weather the night before)
