So the idea is to create a flow chart of the natural progression through dog obedience and tricks, not just one or the other. Right now it's just a bubble map and as soon as I get most written down I'll put it in flow chart form. This will be going for all obedience, agility, hunting, nose work, behavior and tricks as well as any other sport anybody wants to help in so no one will be left out. So right now I have 6 basic categories that a command can fall into. If someone thinks of another category, please tell me. Recall: A command where the dog is moving towards you. I.E "Recalls", Fronts Moving Positions: A command where the dog is moving but not necessarily towards or away from you. This category may or may not involve the handler moving as well.I.E Jumps, Contacts, Heeling Stationary Positions: A command where the dog is not moving once it has changed body position. I.E Sit, Down, Stand Handling: A command where the dog is expected to have a person touching them or the dog to be touching a person or to be touching an object in order for husbandry behaviors to be preformed. This will be separated further by body part most likely. Any tricks in this category do not have to directly relate but instead categorized by body part and can make handling easier. I.E Touch, Grooming, Nail Cutting Distance: A Command where the dog is moving away from you. I.E Retrieve, Send Aways, Sledding Self Control: A command that tells the dog to be in control of itself and/or any command used to regain control of the dog. I.E Go to Mat, Leave it, Watch me If anybody wants to add anything, please feel free!! The more the merry! Just please try and come up with what category it would be placed in and if it would be classified more as a "trick" or "command". For example, Trick: Paw/Shake: The command for the dog to offer it's paw. Would be classed as Handling ->Feet -> Paw.
