This is Ziva,  a 12 week old Australian Cattle Dog.

Here are a few clips from her first lesson.  She is learning how to stand on a platform, how to retrieve a dumbbell and how to play with a toy (plus give it back!).  These are all foundation skills that will serve her well down the road.

In a thirty minute lesson, we go back and forth between these three concepts.  Rotating keeps the attention of a puppy, and I believe it helps them learn faster.

Another very promising baby!
