Ballwork

Ballwork is a vault and localized collection drill that we do here at Pawsitive Vybe.

A fixed and stable exercise ball is used as a vaulting platform to create verbal discrimination between the linear vault, Stall, and rebound (aka: reverse vault) concepts.

Food is used as motivation to keep the dog stable and under threshold and to deliver precise reward placement to keep the session flowing and the rate of reinforcement high.

Verbal vault discrimination and the foundational understanding of the vault, stall, and rebound leads to safe and successful vaulting.
