I actually had not been to youtube to watch dog training videos until about 1 week ago, so when I tried, I found so many interesting topics I didn't know where to begin! My dog loves his crate and knows basic commands. Can you recommend any series for that level? Some of the activities look like fun, but I have crates in rather enclosed areas compared to those huge recreation buildings. Oh to have acreage with ponds,etc.! Peanut butter is about a 2 minute snack. Maybe it should be frozen?? Swimming we are working on. So far he's just in walking around and out again. And he will probably be crated in our house for a very long time because he and the 5 cats drive each other crazy if they get the chance.
But basically, what I'm seeing is, make everything a game, fetching, not fetching, stop, start, wait. The games are training and the training is exercise. Maybe I'm finally "getting it."
