010: PDC and PSA1 from a Judge’s Perspective

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • What the judge is looking for during PDC and PSA1 performances
  • The elements and scoring of the PDC and PSA1 levels
  • How the rules of one level lead to the next level of training
  • Tips and tricks to train for the PDC and PSA1 levels

Key Takeaways:

  • Train a level above to best prepare for the level you are on.
  • Quality matters – including consistency, precision, and fast command execution
  • Train for all scenarios, even if they will not all be used (such as the 5 Surprise Scenarios as seen on the website)
  • Train for the unexpected – bad throws, different types of distractions, and variations on types of distractions (i.e. different types of cans used for can curtains)

The key here is to identify all the skills your dog needs to have. —  Jerry Bradshaw
