A Take is a cued Bite that replicates the placement and timing of a throw.
Usually used with overs, vaults, and flips, the Take is a powerful teaching tool for creating habitual leaping and commitment to flying targets.
Takes allow the handler great latitude in placing discs. Just pop it out there sharply and hold it; it’s easy to place and easier to time. Time is the greatest benefit of the Take as a training tool.
The more time the disc stays in position for the leaping catch, the more apt the dog is to leap up and get it.
This increased time helps generate success and build commitment to the leaping catch.
