|Both arms thrown up in the air together
and extended in an exuberant manner.
|Here, the hand signal is in the action and the dog should quickly learn that it should hold an object in its mouth until told to release it, but once your hands make contact with the object it should release the item immediately|
command is used to tell the dog that it is free to go and do its own thing. It is the
equivalent of 'dismiss' as used on parade grounds.
The command should always be used at the end of a training routine or to signify that a period of restriction or control is over, only in secure areas.
It does not mean 'go away' - that is 'Back'.
It does not mean 'you are free to run off or cause trouble' - so far we have no command we teach dogs in BCR to allow them that option!
