Maybe I just interprited it wrong, but I think she meant yelling like this:
"Come on Boy! Jump! Go Go Go! Yes!!!"
Not like an Army T.O.:
"COME ON YOU #$%*!! JUMP OR NO FOOD FOR A WEEK!!"
It sounded to me more like a motivational thing (Like I did with Skippy! Over Jumps and around Barrels) not a demoralizing yell, lol!
I call it "Hootin' and Hollerin'" when i'm giving a verbal pep talk =) I think she meant the same thing, only used the word "Yell" instead
