Flag and Flash Cuing is a cuing system developed by Pawsitive Vybe for teaching dogs to leap over and off of their handlers. The quick and dirty Over and Vault applications are great. Pro discdoggers should have this tool in their toolbox for sure.
When a Bite is offered as a cookie the dog has earned the right to attempt to Bite that object. It’s a very empowering experience. The dog learns that he can make the bite happen by showing some Patience, giving Eye Contact, offering a Back Up behavior, or whatever.
Most of the behaviors that we create with our dogs are really chains of small concepts and chains are only as strong as their weakest link. Dog trainers and dog sport handlers need to be able to break down complex behaviors, isolate the weak concepts and mark and reinforce them to make them stronger.
