I did this on the pup Skaggs as they were the weakest enemy that didn't shoot at me. To do this go find some pups and kill all but one, then weaken the last one by either shooting him or using melee's. Once he is as weak as you can get him without actually killing him, simply jump up and land on him, you'll notice they take a small amount of damage it may take a few jumps but once he dies it will pop up. I was standing on a flat surface when I did this, so you dont have to jump off any rocks or anything like that to kill them.
Fluster Zerojust to blow some minds here... this is a mario reference

ICED SnowboardYou will find this most easy if you are a higher level like 17 and you purchase (or find) a very low level weapon that doesn't exceed 10 damage and no elemental effects.

The higher level is nice just to keep yourself from getting too damaged.

ADROCKgreybeardYou can also combo head stomps. I got this one on a combo of about 5 stomps. Each one did 3 or 2 damage.

Dixxxxxon@ethanjude

I managed to bounce up and down on one of them about ten times without hitting the ground... too bad there isn't an achievement for doing it 100 times in a row :)

Grimace221That's cool, to be honest im glad there isn't one for 100. Might cost me a controller or two. lol.

GRIMR0KIt doesnt working when i jump over them :-(

Grimace221You don't jump over them, you have to jump and land on them. It only does a little damage when you land on them so you will want to whittle their health down first.

SubtleEel4I got the achievement without knowing how I got it, that's why I came here - to figure out what happened lol

WincelowFinally got this after jumping on a level 34 Hulking Elder Skag about 300-400 times to take off the final 20% of its health. It was like being in The Old Man & The Sea.

A tip for anyone else that finds themselves in the same situation. Stand with your back to the sun/moon so that your shadow and the skag's shadow are in front of you. The skag's shadow gives you quite a good marker as to roughly where you need to jump, i.e. jump slightly backwards to get as much of the skag's shadow in view as possible. That way you always have something to aim at, even when you can't see it.
