This method teaches a puppy everything they need to know about Team Movement is how dog and handler move, as a team, out there on the field. It is a judging category in some organizations and certainly is a focus of More in 5 minutes and immediately translates to disc play. It delivers 5 Set Up Moves are tricks that are used to establish timing and position in disc dog freestyle. Traditional tricks include: Around, Through, Backwards Through, and Scoot, but any or all More for interior Team Movement (one of them being a A Scoot is a Set Up Move where the dog scoots backwards between the handler’s legs. It’s a really clever Set Up Move, the image of your dog spinning around More) and is a complete communication method for all Team Movement. It is one of the first things we teach a puppy.
5 Set Up Moves in 5 Minutes
An Around, or a Go Around is the traditional disc dog set up move. The dog goes around the handler’s body in a clockwise or counter clockwise fashion allowing dog More is the typical disc dog Set Up Moves are tricks that are used to establish timing and position in disc dog freestyle. Traditional tricks include: Around, Through, Backwards Through, and Scoot, but any or all More. It is usually taught in the clockwise direction. There is another direction though, and that direction is another A Set Up Move is used to create timing and position on the fly in disc dog freestyle. Dog and handler often need to switch sides or get a rolling More.
If your dog moves through your legs from back to front, that is a backwards Through. The Backwards Through usually sets up in one of two ways depending on where More, go between the legs from back to Front is a stable position directly in front of the handler. Front is an traditional obedience skill. Usually your dog sits in this position, but standing is often acceptable as More, is also a common Set Up Move, and is usually taught in the clockwise direction. Teaching a counter clock Backwards A Through is a set up move where the dog runs between the handler’s legs. The dog can move from front to back or side to side and can even More is useful for Team Movement and building sequences, and should be considered an additional set up move.
A Scoot, dog backs up between the handler’s legs from back to front is a super spiffy Set Up Move that, historically for many people, has been a tough one to teach.
This method teaches all 5 of these Set Up Moves in 5 minutes total. Boom! This is the kind of stuff we want to teach with a puppy.
A Complete Communication Method
While getting 5 Set Up Moves in 5 Minutes is super cool and helpful, that isn’t the half of this special method. The real payoff in teaching the skills this way is that it creates a complete communication method for disc dog Team Movement.
By focusing on the match and transfer of the A Cookie is traditionally thought of as a food treat given as positive reinforcement. In that definition, a cookie is a discrete piece of food reinforcement. In many dog training More from hand to hand, the handler can teach The Dog is a player archetype defined by The Dog. There are always a few canine athletes that really separate themselves from the pack. Many great disc dog teams have More to follow the transfer of value from hand to hand. This means that a disc in hand used as a lure, target, or cue can be matched to a disc in the other hand and the dog will switch to the new hand. This creates a conceptual understanding of disc dog Flatwork and Team Movement that is the same as functional and natural human and canine movement.
This really is where your focus should be put while doing this exercise. If this is done well, this exercise transfers directly to the disc field and leads to immediate fluent movement that includes Front and Rear Crosses, Passes, and Basic Flatwork Position (BFP) is a standard position of the handler in the Working Flank; hand reaching out towards the dog (usually with a disc) with the dog on the More (Basic Flatwork Position (BFP) is a standard position of the handler in the Working Flank; hand reaching out towards the dog (usually with a disc) with the dog on the More) and Basic Standing Positions (Standing in front of the dog with the disc held vertically in the throwing hand is Basic Standing Position (BSP), a foundational position in the Yachi Method. More).
Marking the Match
This is critical. Actually matching (or passing) the cookies and marking the match of the cookie if the dog is following IS the point of this exercise when it comes to the communication method.
Matching and marking that match if the dog is following reinforces the idea that there is an actual transfer of value from hand to hand. When the hands meet, the dog will shift to the active hand as a product of Reward History speaks to the amount and quality of reinforcement that has happened on a behavior in the past. Having a good Reward History on a behavior means that the More and as a conditioned response. This leads to an understanding that both hands are valuable and that paying Unsolicited eye contact or Attention is a great way to hook up with a dog. If you have something the dog wants he should give eye contact in order to More to how the hands move and interact is predictive of where we’re going and where the cookies (discs) will happen.
Rewarding with Action
This little technique is a huge deal for puppies and dogs who are likely to disengage (scalloping). It enables the handler to reinforce and shape a good behavior directly into the task at hand.
When a disengaged dog reorients and is marked for reorientation, most handlers Short for “Positive Marker”, a Mark is a word or signal given at the exact moment a desired behavior is performed. It’s like a clicker. Mark can also mean the More that re-engagement and pay with a cookie. Once the dog eats the cookie, it is likely that the dog will check out again, setting up a vicious circle of disengaging in order to reengage. This can make starting or maintaining a training session a difficult task.
Instead of rewarding the dog with a cookie for reorientation, reward the dog with the action you are working. In this case, reorientation or recall is reinforced with the presentation of the lure.
Attention (Unsolicited eye contact or Attention is a great way to hook up with a dog. If you have something the dog wants he should give eye contact in order to More) can and should be used to this end as well. When the dog gives attention mark it and reinforce that desirable behavior with the presentation of the lure.
This Rewarding with Action can be required for work to start, setting up a situation where the dog looks into the handler’s eyes to create the opportunity to work. Attention and the start of work become secondary reinforcers.
