  1. Stand up straight and hold your stick out so that you have the handle and the bottom of the stick is touching the ground.
  2. Now simply ask your dog to loop around the stick reinforce and reward.
  3. This trick can be enhanced by teaching forwards and backwards loops around the prop and also loop the loop where the dog continuously goes around the stick until told to stop.
