Tamedog

I am constantly trying tamedogs on my backyard jump and I keep landing on the tip of my board. I'm not sure if I need more speed or more pop from my nollies, And should I try wildcat/backflip before I do a tamedog?

When in doubt, drink another beer and try again.

I'm not really sure why someone linked a method tutorial for you, but I think he posted in the wrong thread by accident

As far as tamedogs go, you don't need to do wildcats/backflips first, you can start with tamedogs.

For what you're doing wrong though, we don't know unless we have video of you, but likely it's lack of pop from your nollie (you don't really need much speed to do a tamedog). Most people get the 'cartwheel' motion, but they miss the nollie part which is what really helps with your rotation.

Yeah tame dogs are easy to do once you get the nollie down and shoulder roll down. I do them off cat tacks a lot along with the rollers after a jump. Like everyone is saying video will help a lot but sounds like you are forcing the trick to much without enough pop.

Pop UP instead of throwing yourself forward.

Need a video though, but that's the issue I see with most people

This trick is a lot about timing, specially when done from a jump. A bit too late and you lose half of the rotation speed. A bit early and you hit your head on the top of the jump. So you may be starting the rotation too late. Once you get your timing and nollie on lock, it's an easy and a super fun trick. That said, a video would be nice to really know the problem. We are just guessing here..
