    You may want to exercise Sophie before training. Bouncing the ball upstairs is a fun in house game we play. I taught Luke as a puppy to roll-over. I actually rolled him over by hand while repeating "Roll-over". There are some very good tricks on this site also!

    End your training sessions at the peak emotional state of your dog. Don't wait until he is bored and tired. You can also end by playing a tug game!

    My dogs turn around in circles if I grab their leech (we train outside most of the time).
