Video: Bo Releasing Object in Hand
I've trained Bo to release objects into my hand as opposed to releasing them and letting them fall on the floor. This is helpful when it comes to him retrieving and bringing a juice box. When we started working on this skill, it looked much different. He would take the stick and release it right away before I grabbed hold of it. Now if he accidentally drops it before I have it in my hand, he will pick it up again and hold it in his mouth for me to take.
