Default Trick questions

So tonight we worked on a couple things. With Mia I am working on her picking something up on command. she will go get her ball on command but nothing else. So we got a chew and I started with her targetting it. Then I held it and she mouthed it. Kept working that till she was pulling on the chew pretty good. Held it close to the ground and she would come up and pull on it. Finally moved my hand out of the way and she's picking it up then dropping it. Was that the way to go about that? I was thinking duration would be the next step.

And then I decided to just do nothing in particular with Summer. I started clicking head turns but she scratched her eye a couple times with her paw so I clicked those. The lightbulbs coming on were very funny. You could see her trying to figure out what it was about her foot that I wanted her to do. Anyways, now she is fairly consistently taking her right paw and putting it by her nose/eye. I'm trying to think of a good word to put it to. Any ideas?
