Spot on, Jason! This is a really nice observations with some great teaching points.

Regarding the reward, that is a good point to bring up with Tim. For some ball loving dogs, receiving a food reward can actually create frustration so Tim’s will have to decide if that is an option worth exploring. If the dog’s jackpot is a ball, a cookie can cause the dog to work frantically trying to get the ball as a reward. A lot depends on if Molly views the ball and treats as equal rewards.

With the next analysis, try writing it as if you are speaking directly to the student (as we are in their homework topics). Don’t be shy about noting a specific time in the video either.

Keep up the great assessments!
