Working a Trigger with KingAir

King has been through the exercise of working a trigger a few times, but we’ve been focused on Team Movement and his disc mauling problem. Breaking out the new guy and Epic to demonstrate some Trigger and Wait work provided a great opportunity to revisit this critical skill for this studly young man.

This is a pretty self explanatory lesson, check out the links above for more detailed instruction.

The Sound of DiscDog | Halting the Chewing and Mauling of Discs with King

Another installment of the Sound of DiscDog with King. This session was amazing for King and I. This mauling/chewing behavior has been a real nag.

It’s very illustrative and easy to hear some of the timing stuff, especially if you heard the first session last week. Check out the audio below before watching the vid if you want the full effect…

      1. He’s come a long way and you should be Super Proud of what you’ve accomplished, I know I am!!!

        The key thing I see is the transition to more patience after a fail on trigger work and keeping him engaged without an instant reward with action without reverting to mauling 🤷🏼‍♀️
        Off to the park for a short disc session with my Boys and see you in class 💞🙏🏻
        1. Yea, have to keep the progression in mind… it’s easy to miss the improvement while the shit is falling apart… General Manager & Coach need to stay off the field, right?

          Have fun at the park.
