    Bonus point for throwing a toy in front of sighthounds without them moving, lol!

  • sebravo says:

    Lara has many more distraction, she love my assistant and I had to give her instructions permanently.

  • jrtfan says:

    I’m proud that Libby started still while I placed the 3 bowls of food and 3 tennis balls ( and there are 3 tennis balls but the one closest to camera not in frame!) Tennis balls are her Kryptonite- I thought it would be cheating to toss a toy or use 3 toys that she cares nothing about. She did a great job with her favorite toy!

  • karen says:

    This was fun.
    I think there are some people (and dogs) thinking that I am loosing my mind..
    Mostly I train home alone, but with this one I needed an assistent so I asked my son who was more than willing to help me out. He added some extra distractions. 🙂
    My garden isn’t big enough to do a nice full circle so I did those and the ones with my son outside in front of our house. The triangles were in our garden.

  • Carol.R says:

    Good fun … that circling around behind was a challenge no doubt

  • Sally Lewis says:

    Since when I released Porter she immediately went to a food bowl and ate which was not illegal since I released her, I added one exercise at the end where she had a jump. She chose to take the jump rather than eat the food when released, which was the behavior I wanted.

  • sebravo says:

    I don’t understand the last one.
    3 toys in a triangle, after the Ok, she could get any ?

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      Yes, we are testing the stay at this point. So “ok” or “get it” releases her from her stay and she’s free at that point and chooses to grab one of the toys. Since she’s been released, that’s acceptable behavior as far as the stay is concerned.

      In this exercise, Esteban releases with “get it” which frees her from
      the stay and to grab the toy and since there’s more than one, she has her pick!

  • Joyce Jackowski says:

    This was interesting to see how Carson did (and Carlie). He turned his head at my husband when the food was shaken but did not move his feet. And I attempted to edit the video but edit in photos takes to iMovie and was different than in the technology video. When I tried cutting small segments, it removed the whole video. Will work on that, review and practice on another video clip not needed for submission.

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      Yes, I use the edit from within the photos app for simple trims. It does seem to give you a watered down version of iMovie to work within. For more than just trimming the beginning or end, I start in iMovie and import the video.

  • Barb VE says:

    These are fun! The only one Enzo failed on the first try was the thrown toy. He just couldn’t believe his friend would throw a toy and he wasn’t supposed to get it.

  • Ellen says:

    Arrrgh! my full circle video cut off about 2/3 of the way around. I also do full circles for 3.5 and 3.6 while laying out the triangle of food bowls and toys. Will the combination of those three circles suffice?
    I was actually pleasantly surprised that she did the triangle of toys on the first try. (food took 2 tries)

  • Cherribob says:

    I was super happy that he ran past his food for the tug and that he did not drag his babies with him to the tug. He sleeps with those stuff animals.

  • lschindler says:

    On the last 2 exercises, is it OK if the dog goes for the food in the bowl or one of the distraction toys when released?

  • Jim says:

    Do we need to use the stand? We haven’t worked much on that, but it’s a good idea. Could we alternate between stand and what she knows best (a ready down or sit)?

  • jrtfan says:

    Can we use the word “stay”? I did not hear that word in any of the clips.
