Good job wwormy now you need to practice outside and other place like pet stores and stuff. Remember good thinks comes to those who wait.

Tell your peeps you want to start graduate level courses like nose to hand touches ie hand targeting.

you can also expand on the it yet choice game to the food bowl as well.

Ester here is a direct link



It is a game training excerise to teach impulse control around food
IT is a very simple game for the human at least to start but a piece of food the smellier the beet in your hand in front of of the dog When the dog comes up to grab the treat out of you hand close it the dog will paw poke with its nose etc to try and get the treat when it gives up open your hand if the dog move toward the treet close the hand until it sit backs and relaxes again. the dog does not get the treat until You are able to deliver it to him with out him reaching for it. Repeat. Over time the dog learnd that it must be patient and not pushy to get the treat Once this is done then you can move on to more advance As in wwormy's case leaving food on his foot till he is told he can have it. Even more advanced is leaving and walking around food scatter on the floor. The video is a good visual learning to on how to train this. IMHO it should be the first step to training with food. It eliminates the "my dog is to distracted to work around food" problem. It is also good for teaching the dog deferintial and calm behavior ie impulse control.

i know a little bit of hand-nose targeting because my teacher Mrs. C. taught us a little of that. my person makes me do that when i pull on my leash too much.
you might be ready to move to target an object. FWIW with a basset a target stick works better than the hand fpr heeling or loose leash training because you don't need to bend down

shape your target cue


by targeting articles other than the hand you can train the dog to go to a mat when preparing food, sending dog ahead agility etc
