Shredding the flag or focusing on the machineUpdated 3 months ago

If your pup won't leave the flag alone once they've captured it - our best advice is to let them catch and completely shred the flag if they want to - that's their reward for a job well done, and a big part of the fun for them! 

If your pup is focusing on the main drive instead of the flag - we advise trying to redirect their attention to the flag. One way to do this is to slow the flag down at a point where they can catch it away from the machine, this helps to keep the focus on the flag. Also let them catch the flag often, and when possible - start moving the flag as soon as they drop it to resume play. This helps them realize that dropping it means more fun - and it keeps their attention on the flag.
