    I am having this issue too. I know its something that I am doing wrong. Am I ready to move onto the two toy strategy? Or do I need to refine my tugging with my pup first?

    • Esteban Fernandezlopez says:

      Your tugging looks great!! Your next step is to do exactly what you did in this video with the same toy, but on leash. When your dog can tug with you while leashed, you can start using the opposition reflext to train the dog to “pop” toward you, and you can mark with a “yes” and then present a second toy, as in Lesson 3. Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

      • Ruben Quinonez says:

        Thank you for the quick response. Greatly appreciated! I look forward to implementing the extra details while on the leash.

      • Ruben Quinonez says:

        I’m able to tug with Cassius on the leash now. When I try to do the two toy technique, he has one toy that has so much more value than the others.

        If I use it first, he has no desire to go after the second one as reinforcement. If I use the high value toy second, he won’t bite the first one, knowing I have the second one on me. Is the fix to put the high value toy away for a while and work on other toys?

        Also, in the video included, am I not timing implementing the opposing reflex well? He doesn’t seam to pop back towards me. Am I not timing the marker well either?
