whatever you want it to be.... start with object then the word will cue the action no matter what it is ......  ;)  Get the action get it fluent, add the word, when it is fluent you have your cue  ;)

The fun stuff will build a closer relationship with you and pooch  :-*

She will respect you more  ;)  You will have more confidence with her

Then the serious stuff will be easier to understand and sort out  :-*

Enjoy

when you have the nose fluent and reliable on verbal cue then just stop clicking that and wait for her to offer something else

just thought would give an update...milly now has a reliable 'snoozy'  ;D im soo impressed! well shes had it for a while now just havent posted! comes in soo handy when eating our meals or we have visitors!  :)
I decided to go further with nose which i am still in middle of doing with her, but shes getting it pretty well, i lay her chicken (cluck) teddy (ted) and ball out for her, i say cluck she noses the chicken, say ted she noses ted, say ball she noses ball,  ;D dont know who is loving the training more me or her!  ;D
So thank you kiz!  :)

you welcome - now extent the behaviours - go for a paw instead - then just the left or right paw - then the other one and if you really clever - you can go for the back ones too  ;D

Wow, I'm so stupid - it hadn't occurred to me to try this with Mollie but it's how I've been training my cats, off and on (when they can be bothered) for years... DOH!!!  ::) ::) ::)

Me gonna play later... will start off by charging the clicker first though. ;D ;D

i dont use paws for this because those are my cues for giving me their paws for checking them over etc.

when touching objects - and because i use a rubber ring and they have to put feets in the centre
i have:

polo - right f paw
hoop - left  fpaw
disc - right b paw
band - left b paw
