Even though me and the dogs have done shaping for a while none of them are particularly creative when it comes to props. I could barely get duncan to sniff a teeshirt I put in front of him yesterday, lol.

Anyways, my new plan is to try smearing hotdog on the rubber dumbbell I have although a toy rubber bone thing or anything of the sort would work.

At least that's my plan- you could try that and then just build duration.

Last night we made some serious holding progress!!!!!! I thought it would never happen! But he was sitting still and holding the little flag for 30 seconds.

We weren't getting anywhere with shaping, and I like immediate results, so I opted to hold his mouth closed and only really had to do it a couple times with big jackpots for him to get it. So he can take and hold the flag now, but needs lots of work generalizing to other objects.
