How did you keep the focus on the dog with the ball?

I was a good distance away so I aimed at her and focus locked on her and with AFC it followed her.

How do you lock the focus on a subject? I was playing with the A6000 in a store, and during AF-C there is no central spot appearing on the screen, so I'm not sure how you indicate to the camera that is the intended main subject? Sure, with one subject there's no issue, but when there are multiple subjects even initially close together - as the dogs were at the start - just how do you indicate to the A6000 what is the main subject?

Loom for Lock On setting, assign to a button and when you have the subject in focus, using lock on will try to maintain focus on that subject.
