Sit - while touching her or squeeking and throwing toy

Stand - while touching her, squeeking and throwing toy or trying to get Jewel to rest her front paws on her back for cute picture in the future

Down - while touching her or squeeking and throwing toy

Heeling - wide and lagging at time when working outside, sits without command

Leash - more likely to pull when walked with Jewel or sees a bird

Touch (nose)- touchs my hand working on target (bottle cap)

Foot - touchs my hand working on target (bottle cap)

Hold - must try to only use this for grooming and teach her wait & stay

Retrieve - working with plastic dumbbell now, puts in hand. Must work up to her waiting for me to take it. Then move to full formal retrieve.

Watch me - Working on having her focus on my face while waving around my other hand with a toy. Very tough for her but she tries and always refocuses.

Recall - Hard to work on with a dog that never leaves you. Either need to get a wait on her or have someone over to hold her to work on this.

Cone - Knocks over small orange cone and stands it back up. Some floundering finding the right spot to stand it back up but coming along nicely.

Box - seems scared to step into the box even after seeing Jewel do it and trying to lure her.

Take it - working on teaching her that it applies to anything I say not just the item I taught it to her on.

Leave it- Great! She'll drop anything she picks up on a walk, always gets treat in trade at this point.

Ball - working on having her roll a large ball around, she's a little scared of it coming back at her but will touch it with her nose.

Bow - Luring for this, using my hand to gently keep her rear end up.

Back - Luring then clicking and using my hand to stop her from sitting. She's starting to take a step without my hand.

Socks - End goal is for her to pull off my socks and take them to the laundry basket. Right now she'll pull them off if I get them half off for her and she loves to take socks OUT of the laundry basket.
