    Thanks put the 'playing' thing in an all new perspective :)... It shows that you are a great trainer yourself. But who is kikoup? Forgive my ignorance...I am new to this academy :)

    I don't have experience on shows, but what probably happened is about distractions:) . The dogs behavior changes around different places, different people, he just want to met it all. So you have to train him in small steps, as always, to change his response around new exciting stuff :

    Thanks! I posted accidentally without the link, but already edited it.

    Does your dog knows tricks? Do you know positive reinforcement?

    Yeah, but he knows very few and obeys only when he wants :)
    He knows:
    1. Sit
    2.Stay (only for short duration he will stay, and then will move)
    3. He tries to catch the fly ring
    4. 'leave it'
    5. If I ask him to look for squeeky toys, he will search the toy and bring it to me, but will not give it to me, and tries to play 'Catch me if you can' :).
    6. He also plays 'hide & seek', if I hide and ask him to find me, he will search for me madly :)

    And yeah, I am a big fan of 'Positive reinforcement'.. I never punish him, tries to make him understand with love and affection. :)
