Training the Send Away with Michael Ellis
Michael Ellis

This DVD covers training the send away using marker training (operant conditioning). Marker training can be done with a clicker or with positive word reinforcement, which is what Michael uses on this DVD.

This DVD covers retraining a Schutzhund dog from older methods via marker training. In the past, teaching the send away via the Schutzhund method involved using a toy placed at the edge of the training field. The dog is taught incrementally to leave the handler's side on cue and run in a straight line towards the end of the field, to get his toy. This can cause unpredictability in training if used improperly, as dogs could fail this exercise because they continue searching for their toy and do not lay down.

Michael discusses when to use touch pads instead of toys in the training process.

The DVD also discusses training puppies on the send away. whistle backs, adjusting training programs for dogs with high or low drive to achieve maximum results.
