    I'm having an assignment due in a few days, hence I'm spending far too much time on this forum and on youtube *sigh*

    My dog knows where I want her to go just by looking at my eyes. I point with my eyes - just to see if she will go there... and then reward if she does. Mostly it's back to the mat next to where her dinner gets served instead of the trip me zone in the kitchen. Pretty sure she's back chained that one.

    I also get quite a few different offerings by how I sit and where my shoulders are... pretty subtle signals. I think my drop signal sometimes looks like I'm doing a distance head butt on my dog. I sort of nod my head at her when she doesn't get the first signal...

    And then there is the whole lot of offerings she makes on her own when she wants something... no signals required except ignoring her...

    PS the most impressive thing about that video is the dog understood the toy name when the reporter said it. When it comes to my evil hound and commands - the only person who can say anything that means anything to her - is me. Tho there are some universals - like hand in pocket of treats - is worth some action - no matter who does it... she doesn't seem to understand when they ask her to do a sit or a drop or a pretty tho.
