I've been teaching "retrieve" various items to Sundog. I've worked on items such as keys, clothing, etc..., but it was always as a training exercise. Today I dropped a water bottle cap on the floor and I asked her to pick it up and give it to me. It took her a couple of tries to understand what I wanted, but then she did it. Yay!!! Later, the wind blew my baseball cap off when I was bending over. I asked her to pick that up for me and give it to me. She did that too. I'm so impressed when I can use a trick in real life. I'm so proud of my little girl.
