Cued Drop

A cued Drop, or Drop for short, means that you tell your dog when to drop, purposefully, and upon your discretion.

A cued Drop is a must in the game of disc in order to maximize training opportunities, create a flexible game and controlled game, and for Disc Management. It also becomes a Secondary Reinforcer.

The Drop is different from the Give in that it has no specific location. Drops happen “Out There”, and Give is putting it in the handler’s hand. It’s a huge difference that can be leveraged to teach and reinforce both skills.

Drop is the natural backchain of carrying the disc. If you want to teach a dog to carry a disc, teach him to Drop on cue. He can’t Drop it if he ain’t carrying it. The dog will carry the disc.
