2o2o- what do you call it?

I've only done running contacts with Frag. I rented Rachel Sanders' 2o2o video from BowWowFlix to train Recon. We're working on it now, but I realized she calls it Touch. He already knows touch as nosing my hand wherever it may be, so I need some ideas. Wait and stay are out of the question, too.

What command do you use for your 2o2o?

Oh, good idea!

I'm open to more suggestions of course. I keep thinking up words and picturing myself on a course being able to spit them out or even remember them. :P

Sometimes I really think the hardest part of dog training is coming up with a name for the behavior!

I call it bottom. I have heard other people call it target or touch. I could probably say Popsicle as my dog is running to the contact and they would offer they same contact behaviour. I don't think thy pay that much attention to what we are actually saying it's all about context, tone and body language.

I haven't seen that dvd but when I first started training 2o2o I did use the command "touch". I've also heard "Easy" and "bottom" and "toes" and "paws". I try not to use any command anymore. When I tell my dog to "walk-it" to do the dogwalk, I expect him to go to the end and stop in the position. It is the same mentality that I don't say "weave weave weave weave weave weave". When I tell my dog to weave I expect him to finish all the poles without me having to tell him each one. This probably wouldn't work while training but it is something you might consider in the future. This works really well for my dog in class and practice but at a trial we have issues with this method so sometimes I still say "touch" at a trial.

Not contact related, but that reminds me of this:
