Since the retrieve is going well, I decided to branch off and teach him some useful skills. I can't wait to try this at the next BBQ XD

Right now we are working on empty bottles, in a simple box carton, in a quiet comfortable place. Eventually we will add in full bottles, place them in different areas, in different buckets, fridges, and heights. Then once he can retrieve confidently, we will move outside and gradually add distractions.

Not bad for just 10 minutes :)

EDIT: I know my spelling mistake on the title on YouTube, will fix later. Also, sorry for the mess, half way thru cleaning.

I'd teach mabel...but she'd take it to her crate and drink it all lol or help herself to the rest of the fridge.:p
Can't wait to see him when he is all fine tuned :)

That is going to be cute! You are braver than me. I use cans. I surely dont want Kyrah dropping a full bottle.
At the height he is carrying they don't break. I tried cans (pop) but he enjoys the material and just chomps on them, either crushing them or piercing them...and accidentally lapping up the foaming beer lol.

Great video Mom...Chase is a working dobe now...he-he...what a sweet boy.

If you hold a DT BBQ this summer, I will be sure to bring a clicker and a pocket full of yummy treats.

Update

So I decided to get a bit more creative with the retrieval. I will NOT be asking Chase to retrieve a glass bottle of beer from this height. This exercise is to improve on his confidence around objects and to desensitize him to wobbly ground, and moving things while retrieving something.

*please excuse his jiggly bits :rolleyesww: *

So, first attempt, needed a little help with the moving basket:

Second attempt, much cleaner :)
