Shorthand for “stimulus control over the Drop behavior” Owning the Drop is a key part of disc dog freestyle.
You can play the game of disc without Owning the Drop, but your game, sequences, and routines will be entirely at the mercy of where your dog drops each and every disc.
If you Own the Drop your dog will carry discs until you ask them to drop, period. If you don’t ask them to Drop, they will retrieve.
Owning the Drop means you can ask your dog to drop anywhere on the field making Disc Management a breeze.
