I'm so glad you picked this clip. Movement is paramount in motivating dogs and also in reaching their brains. The eye-brain connection features special communications with hard wired behavior sequences and attentional states. It's amazing how you can transform your dog's engagement with simply adding movements that attract the dog. I think lots of people don't realize how many profound and scientific elements Michael incorporates into his training advice.
