that is cool Chuck. Kibble never worked for training with my dogs. You have to find what clicks with each dog. What worked for my Samantha didn't work for my Bailey and what worked great for her did nothing for my Patton...and then there is Chief, a little different still. My Chief will do an entire BH routine in my yard for the promise of catching a pine-cone. I have mint growing in my yard and my Patton will do OB drills with the promise of catching a tossed a stem full of mint leaves. I can't get that kind of attention with food. Rubber flying disks work for us as well, now that the middles have gotten torn out and we can tug with them. For my two current dogs the promise of play is of higher value than food. They do like a treat when we are somewhere we can't play (like on a restaurant patio) but it is not there favorite reward.
You can watch Stonnie but what you really want to see is any number of people using marker training. Have you taught the pup that the clicker means good things are coming? That means spending time in the chair going "click" treat, "click" treat, "click" treat. Or you could use a word (what my family does) "Yes" treat, "Yes" treat, "Yes" treat. The click then means a treat is coming and it marks the very moment the pup / dog does something you want.
