Here is Bella, a white uncropped, undocked white Boxer rescue who came initially as an 'aggressive' dog. Bella's owner, Ethan, has been a stellar student, followed the homework religiously, asked excellent questions, posted videos so the Instructor's can review and is a top graduate of the Elementary Class.
Ethan and Bella are now in the Middle School Class and here in the below photo sequence Bella is doing the Sit for Exam. She breaks her Sit/Stay so we help her learn emotional and physical self-control by adding 'distractions' i.e two humans walking close to her in many directions, until she opts to ignore us completely. By the time we finished, the two humans were doing the child game of "Patty Cake" directly behind Bella who ignored our silly game totally.
Atta girl, Bella...you are learning!
First attempt at a Sit for Exam
The final test?
"Patty cake, Patty cake, Baker's Man,
Make me a cake as fast as you can..."
Of course, Bella thinks we are NUTS, but she held her Sit/Stay regardless of our silly games.

Sugar is questioning Bella's hesitation, "Why ARE you messing around?"
ALL the yard dogs want to "help" get that good dead duck. Look at Sugar licking his chops! LOL
Raya says, "Hey, I know how to fetch a dead duck, let me help!" Sugar turns his head to her request.
Of course, Sherpa has just recently been introduced to the wonderful game of fetching dead ducks. She wants to play too!
