Dog Agility Training Tips – The Bang Game

I just found this pet related video on YouTube … and thought you might enjoy it!

YouTube Description http This is a game to play with your dog when training the teeter for agility. It will get the dog used to the noise that the teeter makes when it hits the ground after the dog is running off to his next piece of equipment. This game can also build value for the teeter and make it a fun thing instead of a scary thing. Once the dog gets this game and realizes that the fun is the noise then it makes the teeter that much more reinforcing for the dog. Plus, a lot of ball tossing, food, or reinforcement happens here and that helps make it a stronger behavior. Happy Training! Pam & Bandit

    Bandit just loves it! I had to do it because one time he popped out of his weave when he heard the teeter crash down. It has saved us!

    I bet it is hard for a small chihuahua ti get the teeter to move, since they do not weigh much. I bet she is so cute on it!

    Have fun with the game! The dogs usually like it and really like the teeter because of the high rate of reinforcement for the game.

    What a great game to desensitize the dog to that loud noise! Bandit does wonderfully coming off of the teeter!

    Thank you for such a nice comment! Bandit does love the teeter and is not afraid of the noise, so next we will be working on his speed. I know that a lot of trainers like the speed first, but I always thing safety first. Bandit broke his tibia playing tug in our kitchen and I am a stickler on safety now. 🙂 Thanks again for the really sweet comment!

    @pamelamarxsen i totally agree with you. my dog tries to rush through everything anyway, so no use encourging him MORE.

    I tried agility out last weekend for the first time with my collie and we both loved it – the hardest thing was the seesaw so this was a great idea which I’ll try next week -thanks!

    @rombelinski The bang game is just a fun game to teach the dog that the noise the teeter makes is a good rewarding noise. 🙂

    Can’t wait to try this! There’s always a little apprehension with my pup when going on the teeter.
