Manuel Castañeda, our late graduate and tutor, who passed away in 2018, shows here the Combi-4 skill at a distance, where Chuck Berry, the dog, responds to four signals, sit, stand, down, and free. After that, they have some frisbee fun. However, notice that there is an educational aspect in the frisbee fun: the dog has to drop the frisbee near a particular cone on the ground.
There is always an educational side to any game. In nature, young animals learn essential skills and features of life through various play activities.
To learn more about training and behavior, see our course Ethology and Behaviorism.
