    In order to back up a donkey one must first ensure that the donkey wants to back up..:rofl:

    If he will walk straight up to a fence, or a wall, so he can’t go forward, then ask him to back, any semblance of showing a start to back praise, once you get a step back, cookie time!

    The oldest trick in the book is to turn the animal left and then right so the legs are in motion and then have him back up.
