    What realease cue do you use. I'm debating wether or not to keep the cue okay or to change it. I'm kinda using okay and brake for Brody but I think I should pick one so he dosen't get confused.

    I use "ok" but I used to use "release", sometimes I wonder if I should go back to using "release". Break is a good one too. I hope you find one that you like!

    I also use ok in a very high pitched voice.

    I use "finished" instead of "ok" only because "ok" is used so much just in everyday conversation, I didn't want them confused, or the word poisoned.

    I use "OK!!!!!" in a VERY high-pitched voice.:) It's high-pitched so Shivon doesn't confuse it with the "okay" used in everyday life. It's very effective.(y)

    I use "ALL DONE" said in slightly high pitched, happy voice, with a certain hand move as well.

    I used to use free but it gets to mixed up with the ends of their names

    I just use "release" (I'm still teaching Bella) as its not something I may say accidently in a conversation or something.

    I use free and ok. Actually there is a difference in the use of these words. Free is we are finished and you can go play/sniff. And ok means you can stop what you were doing(sit-stay/down-stay/wait) and I am going to give a new cue.
    I did try release, but I keep blurting out ok or free... So it sounded like this...ok, oh no wait, uhm release...:oops::ROFLMAO: Confusing for them and me...
    They know the difference between an ok used in conversation and an ok meant for them. Mainly because I always ask for eyecontact.

    I use 'that'll do' simply because I got into the habit of that one with my collies doing trials etc. It is not something that is used in everyday conversation much and it is quick and simple to use.
