As promised, how learned "drop on recall"

First step: Had target towel, that had to go and lie down on. When went and lied down on, would get treat. Soon learned, was always to lied down on towel.

Is so fun to lie on towel!
Second step: Jacinta stood right on one side of towel. Was called to Jacinta. When got to Jacinta, instead of sit, had to down. Was easy to learn, because towel was there.

Third step: Jacinta took step back from towel and called. Had to learn, was not to lie down near feet. Was to lie down on towel. Took steps farther and farther back.

Fourth step: Made towel smaller and smaller. Folded up until could not fit on towel. Had to lie down near towel.

Lie down so fast!

Fifth step: Was most difficult. Had to learn, was not only to lie down when saw towel. Was only to lie down when heard "down" command. Sometimes Jacinta would call and not say "down." Then was to come to feet and sit. Is still a bit complicated.

Am waiting for to be called!

Sixth step: Towel got taken away. Pattern in training session was like so. First time, call with towel but without down. Second time, call with towel but without down. Third time, call with towel and with down. Fourth time, call without towel and with down. Then is training session over, and try all again next session.

Then, is "drop on recall" learned! Observe.
