OK... at 0:07 - 0:08 you pinched the flank. You gave him the look of the clockwise Go Around, and he took it. 

Instead of just turning late like that, step forward, towards him a bit, and he'll stay out front. Be careful of pinching the flank like that. It's a great way for a pattern trained dog to wind up on the wrong track in flatwork. 

The recovery at 0:11 was the orientation and pressure point mentioned above. Because you were facing him and you grabbed him and pulled him to the right is exactly what was missing when you pinched the flank above. 

Deck is biased to the clock direction. He likes to run clock. That makes your pinched flank even more dangerous because he is dialed in to seeing that directional cue. 

Be sure to vary the pattern. You are really running the traditional PVR pattern. That pattern, given the reward placement out in front of the handler, will reinforce a tighter flank on the round end of the pattern. If you throw out to the flanks and pull between 90 and 120 degrees you can get a much looser, flowing flank. 

Good work! Deck's a stud!

Disc Dog Book Nearing Completion
So what's going on at +Pawsitive Vybe?
I've been feverishly working on our book, The Book of DiscDog (new working title) It's about 300 pages right now with 15-30 to go.

The first draft of editing has been done on most of the book and there are just a few more sections to finish up. Pretty exciting.

We are looking at late fall for availability, and may be doing a preorder dealing...

Very different, I don't know what I am looking at, what purpose does this have??? I did watch it for awhile, then almost suddenly I got very bored. This "disc" is one of the weirdest things I have experienced in a very long time !!!!!

Too Many people think that they are "Good with Dogs". People who really are good with dogs know better than to approach strange dogs.

Dog Trainer, Artist
Pawsitive Vybe is a Dog Training and Metal Sculpture Studio in Midtown Kingston, NY founded by Ron Watson and Apryl Lea. We specialize in Assistance Dogs, Dog Sports, Positive Dog Training, Animal Wrangling and Behavioral Modification.

We live and work with about a dozen dogs in Mid-Town Kingston, NY in an old Pajama Factory, smack dab in the middle of the city, right next to the tracks.

The PVybe Life is our online weekly video show. It's a half hour of dog training goodness every week.

In addition to having satellite studios in Fargo, ND, Milwaukee, WI, and Thessaloniki, Greece, we are pioneers in Online Distance Learning with our Disc Dog Foundation and Bitework for Behavior classes as well as our Personalized Training and we have a couple more on the way... 

We also do Canine Art. Apryl Lea of Pawsitive Vybe HQ and Abby Cline of Pawsitive Vybe Fargo are classically trained artists and do incredible custom work. 

We've just released the DiscDogger's Toolkit, a desktop learning application on Adobe Air delivering cross platform education to people who love to play Frisbee with their dogs.

I have 2 dogs. A 6 year old pitbull and a mixed puppy. When I adopted the puppy, I wanted to take him to "obedience school" so he would be good. I also wanted to re-train our 6 year old so she could get rid of some of her problems that came with adopting a year and a half abused dog. I called a local obedience school and the class was closed for another month...And now I'm so thankful it was. Fate brought me to Ron and April at Pawsitive Vybe. I don't know any other way to explain what happened next..other than LIFE CHANGING. Ron did an hour consultation with me and I left with a whole new view on dogs, and training... This isn't about obedience, this is about a lifestyle and making a better life for both you and your dogs. Sure, Ron & April can help you get your dog to "stop" whatever behaviors you want, but this is positive training with amazing results leading to a much happier dog, who wants to behave and work for you. This is a hidden gem in Kingston NY and I'm so glad I found it. If you love your dog, this is how he should live..I'm sure of it.. I am writing this review in hopes that I can point people in the right direction and make for a world of happier dogs!

Ron and Apryl just do it right! Their kind of training took me to incredibly deeper levels of understanding all broken up into bite size pieces making it easy to achieve success. They have the ability to go ten levels deep when teaching but can also make it easy for the less experienced owner. They are not only passionate about their work, but wonderfully passionate about teaching others, they simply can't help themselves! For the performance dog, service dog or beloved pet, they have it all! - Judy Curran

I attended two of Pawsitive Vybe distance learning classes "Disc Dog Foundation" and "Bitework for Behavior". All I can say is AWESOME! Apryl and Ron shared their training experience with students, they made great lessons with video support, group chat, one to one skype chat.... video assessment as feedback from each of us. Even I consider myself a good human and dog trainer, from them I learned new ways of approaching the canine behavior. Some people are so lucky to have these guys in neighborhood, for me would mean to fly 13 hours. I never put my dogs on airplane cargo hold and I never will, but to spend a week with Ron and Apryl would be the only reason. If I recommend Pawsitive Vybe? Definitely YES!

Our dogs caught the Pawsitive Vybe! Since Ron and Apryl began mentoring me, my disc dog techniques and my overall dog training methods, my communication with my dogs is clearer and much more consistent. And, I'm having a lot more FUN with them too! One of my most valuable lessons learned from PVybe is that I can enjoy my dogs and accomplish my dog training goals all without Force or Coercion! You can tell right away that Ron and Apryl are passionate about dogs and dog training and training others to train dogs. They are able to address training needs at all levels, whether novice or advanced. Their disc dog seminars are amazing - I've attended two Disc Dog Camps and will attend more! The online instructional content available on their website is extensive. Whether you are looking to improve your competitive edge in the dog sports world or just want to work on a particular behavior issue with your dog, Ron and Apryl have all the tools and resources to help you, too, catch the Pawsitive Vybe!
