011 Bonus: PSA2 & PSA3 from the Judge’s Perspective

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • The reason PSA2 is set up the way it is – as a bridge between PSA1 and PSA3
  • What the judges are specifically looking for during PSA2 and PSA3
  • How to earn and lose points during the scenarios (including 5 extra points during PSA2)
  • Tips to train recalls on command to avoid anticipation

Key Takeaways:

  • Practice with others on and around the field. Get your dog used to seeing other people during events and finding you even with others around.
  • Train & master the art of neutrality to avoid negative anticipation or losing focus.
  • Prepare for various decoy scenarios and distraction scenarios – be creative as nearly anything goes in PSA3.
  • PSA2 is all about recalls, anticipation, and impulse control

“The neutrality is extremely important…You’re trying to fight the anticipation…and work on the impulse control.” —  Jerry Bradshaw
