A Regrab of the disc while your dog is carrying it gives him or her a reason to carry the disc and bring it close to you.

Often employed in Bitework, the Regrab has many applications in disc dog freestyle. It can be used to create a retrieve. It can be used to build Drive. It can be used to teach a cued Drop. It’s a powerful tool.

Remember to keep your Bite criteria in mind while regrabbing the disc. Just put enough tension on it to make it fun and interesting and then Mark when your dog removes the toy from your hand.

If your dog loses the handle on the toy during a Regrab, continue to take it away and try to let them win the next time.
