Well, we usually use this set of cues to have Emmy take a basket of something from one of us to the other. That is, until tonight when the Ol’ Curmudgeon found I had left my cane in the kitchen.
So he called Emmy, held out my cane and cued her to “Take it – hold – bring it.” Emmy proudly marched from the kitchen into the living room and presented it to me. She got a little “jackpot” treat (3 kibbles) for that!
Next task? “Find cane!” Once she has that down, maybe we’ll work on “find keys” and “find cell!” I’m always strewing these objects around the house then hunting for them all over the place!
Emmy is such a smart girl!
