The Sound of DiscDog | Cue as Marker

Ron & Epic demonstrate some sequencing ideas, namely using the next cue as the marker for the current behavior in this Sound of DiscDog session.The Sound of DiscDog is an audio only live-training QnA session on Clubhouse where we experience the sounds of dog training and lend our imagination to interpret and explore the training session.

Listen to this before watching the video to get the full Sound of DiscDog effect. It will change the way you see the game.

Marking with the Next Cue

This sequence is super fast. If I don’t tell Eppie to Stall before he lands the Rebound, he’s not going to be prepared in time and the sequence will either be broken and choppy or he will have to guess what is coming. Neither one of those options is an option. I want to tell Eppie the next trick before he finishes this one so he can resolve that next trick to do this one.

If I don’t give the cue early like this, Eppie will do the Rebound and resolve it simply for a landing or for whatever trick he might think is coming next. By giving the cue during the previous or current trick, the dog finishes that trick with the intent to do the Stall. So Eppie is actually resolving the Rebound specifically to perform this Frontside Back Stall.

It is often easy to get distracted or get too busy to remember to give the cue early like this. A simple solution I use for this is to simply use my next cue as the marker for the current behavior. It gives me a common timing and a familiar conceptual understanding to help me remember to keep the dog clued in.

And of course, I can do this stuff without the pre-cue idea laid out above, but then the dog will be guessing and reading into all of the moves and might easily make a mistake if any of the moves look similar or if I decide to change gears and do something else.

Pre-Cuing for DiscDog Sequences with Jack & Remix

Disc dog sequencing is an art form. A discdog sequence is more than just a list of tricks. A good Sequence, capital ‘S’ should be greater than the sum of the tricks and should be more than just a bunch of tricks in sequence. Tight sequences where the dog and handler are in complex, cooperative movement, together, are quite beautiful and wind up creating this sense of the Sequence being greater than the sum of the tricks.
