another thought for Finn, although this is already "higher math" level training.

Think about giving him more control about the training pace. Maybe, especially when Phil is expecting him to learn as fast as Sputnik, he feels pressured.

You can teach - very fast, indeed - the animal to give a "I'm ready" behaviour. In most cases it's resuming eye contact or looking at the target after receiving a treat.

Look for breaking eye contact, staring into space in Finn. Wait for his attention to return to you before asking for the next behaviour/next targeting. He might need this time to process and when you pressure him by presenting the target too soon he will "zone out".
