here’s some footage from camp of a drill we developed at Pawsitive Vybe for generating the heavy Zs (lots of Spins and Twists are tricks where the dog spins 360 degrees in a clockwise or counter clockwise fashion. Spin is clockwise and Twist is counter clockwise so it is important) on discs required to make them float and hover to entice your dog into jumping up there and leaping for them.
This drill doesn’t have a name, but it should. I call it the stop sign thing. Combine this with the Flick Myth, and it’s kind of an epiphany for many throwers of plastic, beginner to advanced, and has made more than a few disc dog teams happy and hoppy.
I’m not really recommending you do this particular drill as much as I am recommending and highlighting this concept. It’s kind of hard to get the stoppage of the arm correct as the instructor, and it’s important to get it right. But the video is rather clear and you mess around with the concept on your own in a host of way – get creative.
