    Gently blowing in the ear takes the puppy’s mind off the game and elicits an open mouth, the handler removes the retrieve item, the handler praises the puppy for forfeiting the item (switching the puppy back to social), and the handler presents the item again (using Premack’s principle as an outlet to drive for rewarding the switch from prey to social).
