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.
Apryl & Marty take on the Flank or Pass Challenge for the first time during Tuesday Afternoon Disc Quan Do class. The Flank or Pass Challenge is a fun game that challenges the handler to be prepared and to execute thoughtful and competent disc dog flatwork and Team Movement on the fly.
Ron & Epic take the Flank or Pass Challenge during Tuesday Afternoon Disc Quan Do Class. Class members call out Flank or Pass and Eppie and Ron execute on demand. Nothing like phoning in your cues across the country – these cues came to Florida from Southern California and Austin Texas.
Ron & Epic do a little Tuesday Afternoon Disc Quan Do laying out some practical advice and practical application of the Yellow Belt Crossing Pass Form. Stopping the dog after the Front Cross provides additional context and understanding of the Form and highlights the Flatwork Process concept covered in DiscDogger Weekly #23.
This is Session 4 of a series of training sessions with Motown over the course of an afternoon. It served as the introduction for the sessions and the culmination of the progression and a proof of concept for the techniques, strategy, and theory laid out in the 15 minutes of training that led up to it.
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!
