    Trying to keep Charlie occupied whilst Hattie is not on top form, so I have just clicker trained Charlie in a few minutes to put his squeeky ball and Pheasant in a shoe box. He's quick, any more ideas please? Thanks x

    How about the shell game?

    Added: I do feel that I should add as a caveat, that my Charlie is nowhere near as careful and gentle as the dog Jessie in the vid, and cut out the need for the middleman (me) to lift the clay plantpot to get the treat. He just whacked the pot into the sideboard with his paw, and helped himself....

    I love this thanks Julie, I was going to say my Charlie would never be as gentle as Jessie ::) Hope the sideboard isn't damaged and as for snaffling the treats ... ;D

    Thanks Angela, Charlie can do a 360 in both directions so next step round a stool, might give that a go! It's really good doing these little tricks to practise my clicker skills or not as the case maybe ::) x
