Even though I can often beat my dog to places on course, there are a lot of times when it really makes sense to do a good old-fashioned REAR cross. Yes, front crosses and blind crosses seem more fashionable at times, but, even so, knowing how to do rear crosses will help you be a truly well rounded handler, even if your preference is to be ahead of your dog on course when possible.

These modules follow sound training principles that are fun, and based in the training theories of operant conditioning. Develop a real understanding on the part of your dog about how to hit the contact under a variety of circumstances, and with a variety of stride patterns.
