Perimeter with Lasso

After you have played the Perimeter game you are ready to introduce the Perimeter with Lasso game.  The idea is to continue to teach our dogs to remain anywhere within the perimeter we have defined, and with this game we add in the excitement of swinging the food around like a lasso as they are running towards us and allowing them to chase after it as we throw it behind us.  Similar to the perimeter game, but with higher arousal involved, by tossing the food in the opposite direction our dogs must come past us to get the reward and again past us to go back out.  This brings our dog into close proximity to us so there is opportunity to cue them to a different behaviour if we do not want them running back out.
