Riker learns to run out for and bring back the toy to “activate” a game of tug! This completes the training and building drive getting back to me. Now all that is left is to maintain what we have built!
Things to look for – Riker runs out fast to grab toy, turn back quickly and deliver to my hand for game of tug. I still use encouraging voice to get him to run back to me and of course LOADS of play when he gets back to me.
