Wait vs Stay Using a Back Stall with An Over-Aroused Dog

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.

DiscDogger Weekly #24 – Flank or Pass and Wait vs Stay with Dog Catch & Stall

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!

Wait vs Stay Using a BackStall with An Over-Aroused Dog | Pt 1

This is the first of a 4 part session with Motown, an 18 month old MiniAussie. Motown is easily over-aroused while working for cookies. He is Apryl’s dog and she handles him fine. He is still over-aroused, but manageable for her if she stays on top of him. I am not a fan of “staying on top” of a dog. I try to cultivate a sense of self-discipline with a working dog, which is often easier said than done and certainly easier done with a dog who is not yours.

Puppy Dog Catch and Wait Foundation with Grasshopper

Ron & Grasshopper work on a Dog Catch, Pedestal, and Wait vs Stay in this training session featured in DiscDogger Weekly #24. Getting a Dog Catch is a good thing, but getting a Dog Catch while clearly communicating Wait vs Stay and installing a trigger for the Dog Catch is elegant and efficient and the way that we like to do things at Pawsitive Vybe.

Wait vs Stay Using a Back Stall with An Over-Aroused Dog | Pt 3

Session 3 with Motown shows a significant reduction of arousal and a marked increase in Drive. Drive is energy and action applied towards work. Building off of Session 1 and Session 2, we’re moving forward with an increased level of criteria for the target behaviors and are adding Attention, or unsolicited eye contact to the mix to add some additional structure for further reduction of arousal and increased Drive.
