    We all know all about the wonderful Sheltie Spin. Well, Cassie has a new way to spin. She spins like a normal sheltie. But if she gets really super excited, she jumps and still tries to spin. Like a figure skater. Like a bad figure skater, because she can't really do a full spin. So, she jumps into the air and just twists her body around.

    Sounds like Cassie has the basics down pat! She'll be spinning like a top in no time.
    Piper is a pro at spinning (silly me, I taught him to spin on command), he uses his spin move all the time, even when playing with Finnie lol.

    When all four feet are on the floor, she can spin. She just has a hard time spinning when she is mid-air. LOL

    You gotta put that on command!

    Elise loves jumping into the air, so I put it on command and say “boing!” It’s so fun!

    Zulu does it too. More like a hop and spin. He gets all fours off the ground at the start, but usually can only get around 1/2 to 3/4 spin before the front paws hit the ground.

    Willow doesn't spin, or at least I've never seen her do it.

    I have had so many Shelties in my life and not one was prone to spinning. Bet it is fun to watch!
    We need posts of the spinners of the group!
