Hey Toller 08- um well techinically DanL was the only person to post by the deadline, but i still think you should post your vid so we can see all of the great work you guys did. It doesnt bother me that it was one day late so as long as Dan doesnt mind we can still have an open vote, I will pm him and see.

Either way post your vid as I really wanna see how it turned out- Congrats on completeing it

Here it is:

That's fine if it doesn't actually make it in the contest since I posted it too late. Lol, my video skills aren't very good, but I hope it'll do. I wish she'd retrieve it properly in the middle rather than by an end, but I'm just happy she did it at all without attempting to eat it.

Awesome. I haven't had a chance to read this entire thread yet sorry... for those that were able to successfully teach their dogs to retrieve the hotdog... how did you teach it... what methods did you use? What were things you found frustrating during your earlier training sessions and how did you turn those frustrations around and achieve success? If these have already been answered earlier in the thread I'm sorry... like I said... I'm too darn lazy to skip back a few pages... at least today I am

I can't really give you any tips, Amber as Dance just did it. I didn't really teach her at all. I put her in heel position, threw the hotdog, and then sent her to retrieve it. She sniffed it at first like she was going to eat it, but then I just said "here", and she brought it. That one hotdog lasted our entire "training" session of about 15mins without damage. I rewarded her with pieces of another one at first, and then nothing, as she was just happy that I was happy with her.

Default Nice!

I just found this forum and the first thread I saw was this one! I know my dogs wouldn't be able to resist taking a bite out of the hot dog. Well, I guess I don't really know for sure until I try it, so maybe I'll buy some hot dogs tomorrow and give it a whirl.

Anyhow, loved the videos and am blown away that some of your dogs had such willpower. I'm going to have to be careful spending too much time here because if every thread is as interesting as this one, I can see minutes turning to hours. I'm looking forward to see what other gems you have in here.

Sincerely,

David Squires
