The Importance of An Off, Standby and On Switch

A lot of people like to teach their dogs a cue that means they are on duty and when they are off duty.

This video will show you the importance of having a “standby” and “off” cue that lets the dog know he can relax.

It is especially important for high drive agility dogs so they know when to settle and allow the handler to interact with their environment without “ignoring” their dog.

The “standby” cue is a specific body position that Janice teaches her dog that keeps the dog engage, but in a relaxed frame of mind.

While the “off” cue allows the dog to maintain a static body position allowing both Janice and the dog to interact with their environment.
