This is Zebu, a half German Shepherd half Belgian Malinois playing the obedience food game with me. I recently switched him to french commands to keep his sport commands pure and separated from casual obedience so you still see the abbreviated luring gestures to get him to position quickly and clearly.
I am sacrificing some accuracy for energy. I am trying to be as accurate as I can but the focus in this case is making things quick and fun to keep the dog focused on the task at hand for a fairly long amount of time for a puppy. As a result I marked hovers sometimes because it looked down from my angle, so it's always good to tape these kinds of things from another angle to catch it. I don't typically work in circles quite so much but I wanted to keep it in frame and keep him stable on the rug, so depending on which hand I load up with and feed with I trade off which direction we make the circles in to keep him balanced and not favoring one particular side.
This kind of thing is the kind of training you would see from trainers like Michael Ellis. Instead of boring slow paced drills that make the dog want to check out it gets turned into a game that focuses on engagement first and foremost, and then the other behaviors second. He is so excited to play when he knows it is coming he gets a little malinuts at the start.
