Set Up and Position
Set Up Moves and Position are key elements for all levels of play.
Pawsitive Vybe has created a few simple drills that teach both the skills necessary for proper Set up and Position and that lay a foundation for a clear communication system for disc dog Flatwork and team movement.
If you don’t have solid set up moves and position then you have a hard time recovering from mistakes on the field… You experience stress or waste valuable time and effort during training… It becomes hard to flow… or worst of all, you decide not to try a cool move because you just can’t get your dog to get in position or set up that way.
Set Up and Position is the foundation for playing disc with dogs. If this element of your game is strong then everything else becomes much easier.

Disc Dog Foundation Week 2 Flatwork
You got your lesson plan and a tailor made plan of attack for your flatwork foundation from our hangout last night. Now get out there and move your dog around using directional or oppositional feeding, and don’t forget to set that flank.
We’re going to work on wrapping your head around crossing throughout the week. Don’t sweat it if you don’t get it. Front and Rear Crosses are much easier to perform and understand once you’ve worked some patterns.
Hit me up by mentioning the Disc Dog Foundation Circle on G+ if you need anything.
