Default Building play drive?

Basically I want to build a play drive with my 3ish year old Mountain Cur mix and not quite sure how? She knows what the clicker is and loves it. She has a solid sit, down, back and watch me. I'm hoping to build some sort of drive with her, if it can be done.

Here's a video of what I'm working with:

I like the method from SG's website for dogs that are showing little to no interest in toys, tugs, etc.

Just remember, keep it FUN. If you aren't having fun, your dog isn't having fun either.

You can also play games like Speed Drill Sits, Speed Drill Downs and Speed Drill Settles.

I'll respond with what I can when I'm home but I just wanted to say Yay! I think this is a great start.

Any ideas of what kind of toys would work? She likes killing stuffies and I know Beau loves the squeaky stuffless foxes.

Think that would work?

I have a stuffless fox on one and a rabbit fur tug on a bungee with a squeeker on another. Use anything and experiment.

If she likes the flirt pole and spring pole, building her prey/play drive shouldn't be too hard at all. It sounds like she has it in her and just needs some channeling.

I have this thing on my flirt pole right now:

And, much to my amusement, the club I went to last night uses the same thing on their flirt pole, LOL.
