Off-leash exercise - send off
A big part of teaching a dog to be reliable off the leash is about engaging them in a variety of games and exercises around distractions.
This particular cue can be used to teach a dog a number of different things. The most effective way to develop the level of enthusiasm shown here comes from short and energetic training sessions over time. A good tip to keep in mind is to quit while the dog is successful, and before they start to lose interest.
