    I realized that Valentine has learned a ton of commands just to play fetch and tug, and this is before I make her do other tricks to get me to throw the ball.
    I played a quick session with her to lay out all the things a typical game has made her learn.
    • Go Get It = Fetch.
    • I Can't Reach It = Bring it closer to me, you dropped it too far away from me and I'm lazy. :LOL:
    • Hand = Put it in my hand. (If I don't ask, she'll usually put it right at my feet or in my lap.)
    • Tug = Don't just stand there chewing on it, actually pull on it, dear. :p
    • Drop It. (She actually learned "drop it" from the tug game.)
    • Take It = Put it in your mouth.
    • Catch It = Grab it before it hits the ground. (We practice that with treats. She's only allowed to eat them if she gets them before they land.)
    That's quite a lot of things to learn just to play one game! (Well, sort of two. But still!)

    Bonus: you'll also get to see how comically intense she is with her addiction to a ball. She even does her crazy dance. :)
