Week 16: Drop on Recall

This week at Megan’s request we’ll be teaching or perfecting aspects of a “Drop on Recall” exercise.

The specific aspect of this that we will be working on is the dog dropping, on cue, while running towards his handler. We’ll be trying a slightly different format for this week’s GCC and give some daily prompts. Not all dogs will progress at this pace and especially if the dog already has some of the foundation in place.

We are assuming the dog has a fold-back down and will offer this behavior. Today we’ll review offered Downs. For the average dog, we want about 15 downs per minute. But this is not practical for all dogs.
