Can your dog resist the reward they thought was coming immediately and use their self-control to do a cued behaviour for you? If you have a decent recall this is a game you can use to test it? Dogs are constantly anticipated and predicting what is going to happen next, and this game uses that anticipation to proof a behaviour you think your dog knows, so you can see where they are actually at.

Don’t worry if your dog doesn’t get it right at first, they are just learning the game like you. Remember to reward approximations to reinforce the real effort they made and keep the love for learning alive by always, always, always building desire!
