So... I just tried spitting food into Molly's mouth while practicing fronts. How do you spit with such great precision?? The food was bouncing off Molly's face.

How old is Bella? Sounds like great work!

start by teaching them to catch a treat dropped just a few inches over their mouths. I like to use popcorn when first teaching.

Thank you! I will try this. She can catch it if I'm not spitting it directly above her. Our trainer doesn't like spitting so she never taught us how to do it. Molly doesn't get as close as I'd like without my hands luring her in, so I'm open to trying anything.

Last month I went to train with a friend who is also a trainer, and she used that opportunity to start teaching her puppy to catch treats. She had her on a leash so she couldn't eat what she didn't catch (helps them work harder to try and get it), and then we worked our older boys with all the popcorn left on the training floor for some proofing. I was very proud of Flip, he did not eat any popcorn

As of about two weeks ago, Bella would just let food bounce off her face, but now she's catching really well. We've been working on it a lot. No spitting yet though. I need to work on my aim. I do carry hot dog pieces in my mouth now and hand them to her.

Thanks for the videos. I'll have to pick up some dowels next week.

She's 7.5 months. I took two Dobermans to obedience class when I was 12 and 14, but that was 30 years ago. This is all new to me at this point, but fortunately, I seem to have a good dog to make it easier.

Loisiana, I see you have a number of videos on your You Tube page. I'll be watching a bunch of them. Thanks again.

It's not really spitting a treat, it's more just leaning over a little and letting it drop out of your mouth into theirs. If you can't drop it straight down, chances are your dog is too far away on the front!
