The Sound of DiscDog | Drop & Catch with Obi

Ron & Obi work on catching and dropping on cue through controlling the pace and energy level of the game during a Clubhouse Sound of DiscDog session in the Pawsitive Vybe Club. These audio only live training and QnA sessions are a feature of our community work on Clubhouse. This video and audio below are only my perspective, but there are a bunch of people listening on the other end lending their imagination and good questions to the session.

Check out the audio before the video to give your imagination some exercise and to test it against reality.

Pace of Play to Reinforce Desired Behavior

If you’ve watched me play before on video or listened to some of these Sound of DiscDog sessions, you might notice that my energy level and general pace of play with Obi here is a bit lower and slower than other sessions.

Obi gets too high to catch and drop properly if I really ramp him up. He’s got a fitting nickname of “Space Ship”, coming from Benny of Lego Movie fame. When he gets too high he clamps up on the disc and flings himself around after discs with little regard for the catch.

Be sure to keep the pace of play and general energy level in mind when working on problematic skills. It is an important piece of the puzzle.

Another installment of the Sound of DiscDog with King. This session was amazing for King and I. This mauling/chewing behavior has been a real nag. It’s quite oppressive in normal working environments, but it wound up being an easy job in this Sound of DiscDog session. It’s very illustrative and easy to hear some of the timing stuff, especially if you heard the first session last week. Check out the audio below before watching the vid if you want the full effect…
