My last go-out clips showed Pounce using a platform and cookie on a plate to help her understand what a go out is and to help draw her out to the end location.
One month later (and I don’t train everyday!) I am now showing the progression that Pounce is making with no go-out aids. This tells me what I am doing is working really well! I will next be incorporating GO OUT AND HIT IT so that if she ever stops short on a go out, I can ask her to HIT IT and she will turn around and continue to the end of the go out and touch the ring gates with her paw or hit the wall if I have something solid. I will bring back the platform through-out her career to maintain a nice turn and sit.
