Anna, here’s our video for switching to a toy. A couple of times she went to the jump to turn so maybe she’s a bit confused?

Here is my L&R with a toy video. This training session lasted about 10 minutes. I would have cut it off sooner but he was making pretty good progress so I proceeded. As you can see as soon as I had a toy in view he sort of fell apart. He has never barked in any of these training sessions before. When I moved to a toy on the ground he was still a bit agitated by it, but quickly calmed down and was working silently for me again. That’s my analysis I’m looking forward to yours

my video didn’t show up so I’ll try again now

Sandy Mullis

I also was pleased with his progress in just one session! I was aware that he cut behind me and wasn’t pleased. I made sure he didn’t do that again! I will try the toy in front instead The older he gets – the more obsessed with toys he’s becoming!

Here is our video; he loses interest in toys rather quickly, so I used the Manners Minder instead. Was this OK?

Elise Strauss

OK! Thank you Anna! πŸ™‚
