Used cheese and then dog treats to train Buddy. At the beginning too many things were in his way in order to properly learn the trick. We moved the direction in front of me to give more space, and then we moved the slide and had my friend's nephew play in the other room. I was worried at first that he would only learn to follow the treat and that's what he was learning. I kept elevating my hand so that wouldn't be the case. Kept the "Low Stress Handling Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats" in mind when Buddy would lose concentration, and would wait for him to return on his own instead of chasing him. Also relied on the "What Shamu taught me about Life Love and Marriage" book to show how to use a least reinforcing scenario when Buddy would walk off.
