System Recap

5 Different Motion Cues:
1. No motion
2. Forward (Accel)
3. Deceleration
4. Lateral
5. Backwards

What type of motion is used for a forward send? Deceleration

What type of motion is used for a lateral send? Lateral

When executing a forward or lateral send, a t what point relative to a jump must you begin your motion as a turning cue? Prior to the point of commitment

Why does the dog not refuse the jump? Because of the balance of additional forward cues: Shoulders forward, verbal cue, hand motion, eyes, etc…

The timing of the motion cue is more important than the location cue.

6 Cues to provide the dog with information:
1. Motion
2. Location
3. Shoulders
4. Eye contact
5. Hand
6. Verbal

When handling, your job is to create a balance of cues telling the dog where to go in a timely manner.
