Showing duration and willingness to "target." I haven't been using "pony up" with this because that's more for elevated surfaces and front legs online vs. 2 on and 2 off stuff. We've also been doing work with her pivoting into heel on her target.

Excellent. She is ahead of the game for foot targeting (as are many of my tricksters!).
It makes sense to me to call this something different if "pony up" usually means that she's like, almost leaning on something. I call both of those skills "perch," but we all know that our dogs can cope with imperfect choices from us, to some extent. 😂
