A video showing Ellie at the end of the first week of the "Retrieve a Remote Control" dog training challenge.
The challenge is to have the dog retrieve a remote control (or similar object) from a distance of at least two metres, and place it into the owner's hand.
Ellie has picked this one up really quickly, and I'm not really sure how much further we can go with it. We can perhaps:
Improve the sit position at the end.
Retrieve it over a greater distance.
Move the remote to different locations.
We'll keep on training it until the end of the month though. The more it's practised, the better she'll get at it.
