PVybe Dog Sport Behavior Camp – Organization

PVybe Dog Sport Behavior Camp – Organization

Holy moly! Last weekend was pretty awesome. Nothing like leaving the frozen tundra behind and landing in beautiful Ft. Meyers for 3 days of intensive dog training with dog sport enthusiasts. It was a Herculean task – 21 working teams with 4 reactive dogs – and we wound up delivering 84 15 minute sessions per day on a variety of foundational dog training skills while simultaneously delivering the Pawsitive Vybe.

Here’s a quick little hit with Loot. Working on proper vault timing. Notice that the disc is in position before he has left the ground. Loot made one decision, from the ground, to go get this disc: If the disc is thrown for the vault after the dog leaves the ground he leaves the ground without […]

The other day, we co-hosted a newscast with Sarah Hill and KOMU 8 via a Google+ Hangout with 9 dogs and a Stunt Kitty. It was a great experience.

A few Days ago I wrote about Improving a Toss and Fetch Retrieve and said that I’d share two techniques that we use here at Pawsitive Vybe to increase our Retrieve speed in our dogs. Here’s is the first technique, Bitework. These techniques will be covered in complete detail in pictures and video in our […]

I have been asked on more than one occasion,”How do I get a faster Retrieve from my dog in toss and fetch?” It’s a simple answer: give your dog a reason to haul butt back to you. This simple fact often escapes handlers because we all get caught up in the game of toss and fetch – […]

Tapping Technology to Teach – Part I

You may have noticed that PVybe has been using cutting edge technology to teach dog training online for some time now. I will be writing a few pieces this week that speak to technology and teaching. How we have used it in the past and how we are using it now. This post is about my online community and marketing experience from 1998-2008, focusing on community outreach, and online teaching and technology.

Teaching a Hoop With Bitework

Teaching a Hoop With Bitework

This is a typical Bitework Application session. There is a plan, in this case, we’re going to develop a Hoop, skill where the dog leaps through a hoop made from the handler’s arms. Working this skill with Bitework yields a loose a sloppy understanding and performance of the skill. It works, it’s fast, but if we want to teach this skill well, cookies would be a better method. Teaching this skill with Bitework will yield a ‘quick and dirty’ trick.
