I held out a treat to Tessa and when she would put up her paw in the 'please give me that" way I would mark it and say high five. Eventually after enough marks, I just say high five and she smacks my hand gently. I also taught her to paw "shake" by first just getting her to let me touch her paw and marking, then working up to the point where she'd give it to me.
and crock, I would love to bring Tessa's kong, but the trainer only allows toys during 'designated toy time' not while she's talking. The puppies can't even socialize with each other till 'designated puppy time' which doesn't happen every class
. So I'll just take Quests advice and keep doing the alternating commands that I've been doing to keep Tessa motivated.
