Masi does a really good "out",,and for her it was easy to train, (why I don't know she was just 'easy!
She is a tugging fool, and her high value is a frisbee, I figured if I can get her to "out" on that, I could get her to out on anything..
I first taught her a good 'drop it',,with anything and everything other than her frisbee. She soon learned if she 'dropped it',, She would get it back faster and more "play" than if she didn't . Nothing ticks her off more than her having a toy and no one will play with her.
I then transferred the drop it command to OUT...Started with a tug,,I get her amped up, holding it with both hands, she has to sit/stay and NOT touch it, until I say so..
I tell her to "take it", still me holding with both hands,,tug for awhile,,and then I "out" her..what can I say sometimes I have to really yell OUT and MEAN IT
So , now I transferred the tug to the frisbee since THAT is her really HIGH value toy..You can just see her go "ok ok if I out this, she's gonna throw she's gonna throw it"...
I guess it's about her learning control , and what's the fastest way to get the reward she wants..
anyhooooo thats' what I've done for a good "out"..
