I am adding platforms to Dice’s position changes. The long platform in front ensures that he move his body straight back and forth. The back platform is perpendicular and has a different texture – that platform gives him a rear foot target, which encourages him to kick all the way back on his stand cue.
I include the errors for learning purposes.
This is a typical type of video that I share at my new online subscription service The High Drive Dog. I post about five times a week, covering everything from working through reactive behavior to precision heeling to foundations of play. With regular informal webinars, an active community, and all of Dice’s puppy training videos being uploaded a few a week, there’s something for pretty much everyone. The program costs $9.95 a month; the goal is affordable education for anyone who wants it.
I hope some of you decide to join me!
