Consequent Cue

A cue that is given as a consequence for correct behavior is a Consequent Cue.

In the game of disc dog freestyle, the consequent cue is extremely important. Dogs are reinforced by opportunity, and there is not much greater opportunity in the game of disc than more play (Next).

If you offer your cue before your dog has complied with the previous cue then you are offering opportunity to your dog and are likely to reinforce non-compliance with your cue.

A Consequent Cue reinforces compliance with the previous cue.
