    I used a pointer stick to train it. Now I need to wean her off the treats.

    Sorry about that. You should be able to click on the thumbnail and just have it play without downloading.

    It’s actually called a target stick. It’s kind of like a pointer with a little ball on the end. You teach the dog to target the end of it by touching their nose to it. Touch the end, get a treat, etc. once the dog understands it will get a treat it will follow the stick. Dog on one side, stick on the other. Show the dog the stick between your legs and the dog will start to follow the stick through. That’s it in a nutshell.

    Here’s a video explaining the target stick.
