So it's pretty crap, but our version of entertainment tonight was recording Luke while doing some (loosely termed) shaping with toys and a box.
He already knows how to put rubbish in the bin and has a basic understanding of picking up objects we ask him to, so we wanted to see if he could work out how to get the treat.
As you will notice, he does offer different things. At the beginning he tries putting his head on the box, trying to work out what he has to do.
"Yes" is my bridge word
"good boy" is my encouragement word
"you missed" is try again
"No" is stop that, but he only has a loose understanding of that one , hence why we say it a few times
The treat is CORN CHIPS!
See if you can see his brain ticking away

As you will see, he has a habit of taking them out again to get rewarded for that object, so we take them away if he brings them to us, without reward.
Yes, we do make a few training errors with commands but we were tired and that's life It was all just a bit of fun to work him mentally while sitting on the couch
