Exercise 6-2: Stand/stay, Drop on recall

Stand/stay, drop on recall, front or finish. 
Handler leaves dog in a stand/stay, walks away, then cues a drop on recall, followed by front or finish.

Purpose: Demonstrate an emergency stop/drop during a recall.

Equipment: None.

Exercise set-up: Handler starts with the dog standing at his/her side in heel position.  The exercise begins when the handler cues the dog with a single verbal and/or signal to stay and then walks forward about 25 ft. (7.6m), at which time the handler turns to face dog. After a 2-second pause, the handler then turns to walk another 25 ft. (7.6m) and again faces their dog.  The handler then cues the dog to recall with a single verbal OR hand signal, and then asks for a drop with a single verbal OR hand signal at the first 25 ft. (7.6 m) mark, where the handler paused and turned the first time.  After 2 seconds, the dog is recalled to front or directly to heel position.  The exercise ends when the dog is with the handler (in front or in heel).

Scoring: Pass/Not yet!

Non-qualifiers: Does does not hold the stay. Dog anticipates the drop cue.  Dog anticipates either recall cue. Dog does not come close enough to be touched by the handler.  Handler does not stand in one spot after the recall portion begins.  Handler gives multiple cues.  Video does not permit the exercise to be adequately judged.

Tip: None.
