Cued Bite

A cued Bite, Bite for short, is a request or permission to bite a target.

This usually happens in the hand, but it can be used to elicit a bite on any target in a variety of situations.

The cued Bite is used frequently as reinforcement during both training and performance, and also has many applications within disc dog freestyle training and performance because the dog puts their face where and when the cued Bite happens. That means power and control over position.

The cued Bite is a natural backchain of the Give, “I can’t bite it if you don’t have it. Let me go get it for you.”

The criteria for the cued Bite is to remove the disc from the handler’s, it’s not a tug. Tugging may or may not happen at your discretion.
