In this episode of the 10-Minute Trainer, we’re going to work on collection cues. Collection cues are different than turning cues; most of the time, turning cues are sufficient to let your dog know where to go next on a course. However, there are some times when you need to more specifically cue your dog to collect, or slow down. Some of the cue combinations you do with your dog on course may be causing your dog’s response to your collection cues to be dulled (or nonexistent!). In this 10-minute trainer, we’re going to take a look at whether or not you can cue and get collection. Remember, you get what you reinforce – so if you cue collection, and your dog does not give you collection as a response, and you continue on, you’ve reinforced something other than collection as a response to your collection cues!
