Hi Anthony.

Definitely try higher value treats!!! I watched the last video post but am going to save the video analysis for your next post so we don’t use up your allotted video submissions for this week. I’m very curious to see how she does with higher value rewards. She does seem more comfortable in this setting. If you haven’t done your training session yet, can you try using less obedience (sits, stays) while training. Try keeping the entire session more upbeat. To reset the targets, you can either put her behind something like a baby gate if that is something she is familiar with or toss one of those high value treats for her to go find across the room while you quickly switch the boxes (my preference). This will generate more action in the training session and should raise the energy level provided you are also keeping an upbeat attitude.
