In this video, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Mouse, is learning to like, play with, and take an object. The goal is to get him very interested in this object by playing with it. This technique is useful when teaching dogs to take objects for service dog work or for obedience work. The object in this video is a neoprene sleeve to be worn by unconscious water rescue victims. Thank you to my roommate, Jeremy for helping in this video. 


In this video, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Mouse, is learning to look under a boat. I start by putting bait under the boat so that Mouse gets the idea of going under a boat, then I graduate to having Mouse look for a person under the boat. Video 1 of 3 so far. Thanks to my roommate for playing the "victim."
