Push Drop Stick Rules – a way make your training more efficient.

Do you want to make your training sessions more efficient? Push Drop Stick Rules as taught by Jean Donaldson are the way to go. The rules are simple to use and will make your training sessions both systematic and efficient.

Push Drop Stick Rules:

Train is sets of 5

  • If the dog gets 4 or 5 correct in a set push to the next level of difficulty.
  • It the dog gets 3 out of 5 correct repeat (stick) the same step again.
  • If the dog gets 2 or less correct drop to the previous, easier step.

This system assumes that the trainer follows a written training plan with clearly defined criteria for each step.


That is all there is to it! Give it a try and have fun training your dog!
