Passing can happen actively or passively. The Crossing Pass allows the handler to handle the dog into the pass, setting the dog’s line and creating a trigger to start the maneuver from a Team Movement perspective.
There is a lot more to a vault than the definition. There is a reason you can’t just watch a YouTube video and get an understanding of the vaulting process. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you know how to do it, or how it is done; performance is not understanding. This is very evident when it comes to vaulting.
Ron & Grasshopper work on a Dog Catch, Pedestal, and Wait vs Stay in this training session featured in DiscDogger Weekly #24. Getting a Dog Catch is a good thing, but getting a Dog Catch while clearly communicating Wait vs Stay and installing a trigger for the Dog Catch is elegant and efficient and the way that we like to do things at Pawsitive Vybe.
There are really only 2 ways to throw a disc to your dog, you can Flank or Pass. Ideally you display a mix of both of these types of throws in your freestyle game. Passes are set up with Team Movement but Team Movement is not required to make the throw or the catch. Flanks are also set up with Team Movement and Team Movement is required in the placement and timing of the throw and the catch.
Episode 24 of the show takes on over-arousal in a multi-session progression lesson on Wait vs Stay featuring Ron & Motown working on the Back Stall. This type of strategic multitasking in dog training is what we do here at Pawsitive Vybe and should not be missed. We also have some Disc Quan Do class excerpts featuring the Flank or Pass Challenge that are on point for DiscDogger Weekly. Hope you dig the show!
