Training a competition puppy foundation obedience

Pan has left infancy behind and become a toddler. His coordination is improving, his attention span is growing, and his boldness and intensity are increasing. 
I am continuing to work on the four subjects that will be the foundation for all the skills he learns; luring to shape behaviors, move away from reward to earn reward, coming when called and retrieving. 

 Learning to retrieve is fun, great exercise, and very useful. However, learning to "Come" when loose is the most important skill that you can teach your puppy. Get in the habit of working on "Come" every time you take your puppy outside.
