Working with the three big dogs on "all four paws on this footstool." Because I felt like it... I have a tendency to see random stuff, like the footstool my mom bought because she can't reach the top of our cabinets, and decide it's for training. (Georgie did not get to play because she is having an upset tummy.)

It's funny to me because Auggie seems to "get" the trick right away, but he can't maneuver his body into position because he just can't stop moving long enough to think it through. I cut out the minutes and minutes where he just hopped back and forth repeatedly over the stool while barking at me. Payton, OTOH, immediately thinks we are just playing the pivot game, and it takes him a while to try something additional, yet he still manages the final trick faster than Auggie. I think it's because Auggie is used to having been lured for so long, so having to figure out how to get there - even when he seems to know what I'm looking for - takes him longer.
(Spoiler, Pepper never gets to the final trick but she gets very close; it takes her longer just to manage her two front feet on the stool because she hasn't played that game as much, so we stopped with "feet on the stool and move your back feet towards the stool.")
