Eye Gaze used as the only cue

The video below is of maybe the 10th session of Lil playing a new “eye gaze” game. The only cue I am giving her re: which toy to target is shifting my eye gaze towards one of two toys.  She picked up on this game so quickly (like in the first session) it is likely she has already been using the gaze of my eyes as a “cue” beyond this game. The inspiration to set up this game was to determine how much dogs pay attention to where their “people” are looking since this has been a big topic amongst agility folks lately.
