Default Start with "charging the mark."

That is what I *didn't* do

I believe I have it right now:

1) Charge the Mark (which builds engagement)
2) After the Mark is charged, then make it a mini-event (mark, lure pup into following treat and give treat)...which also builds engagement
3) THEN you can do more engagement games...
4) Now that the puppy knows the mark = good, other training should be more effective (not jumping on the ex-pen, not jumping on me, rewarding attention/eye contact with me, coming back to me while on a long lead/walk, etc.)

Look about right? Anything else I'm missing?
