One of Seva’s recent commands is Look. It tells her there is something nearby I want her to find and retrieve.
In this video, Scott hid a set of keys in a store. Seva and I walked into the aisle and I gave her the command Look.
She looks for the keys and when she spots them, I say Get It.
She picks up the keys, and I say Give.
She puts them in my hand.
What if she didn’t know what to pick up? I would use the cues That’s It, Leave It, and/or Try Again to direct her to the right object. It’s kind of like playing Hotter/Colder and the tone of my voice does most of the work.
