014: Redirected Bites

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • What redirects are and practical uses for redirects in sport and work
  • The importance of planning properly
  • What to expect from the dog as you are starting as your dog becomes more proficient with the skill
  • What to watch out for during the exercise to avoid anticipation

Key Takeaways:

  • Redirects are a precursor to out and return as well as the recall/call-off command
  • Do rewards in heel position as much as possible
  • Training is not about an “always” or “never”, things can change based on the scenario
  • Don’t be in such a hurry to get rid of the leash, it can be a great training tool

It’s a process of successive approximation. Don’t get worried if the dog doesn’t do it perfectly the first time. —  Jerry Bradshaw
