Hi, Daisy, here is our homework of the blended FC to a BC drill First 4 trials are of the first session were we did work only on this drill. Dizzy is already used to this as part of the Agility Training Challenge though in a different set up. And we have been practicing in our regular agility course this summer. In the beginning Dizzy had quite a problem with jumping into my back instead of me showing so strong collection cues (he is very sensitive to these but thanks to a long history of positive reinforcement he now seems… Read more »

Hi @Daisy Peel and thank you once again for commenting! Dizzy is about 4 ys. old but we’ve only started competing this spring so we are still in LK 1 (beginners). And the blended fc or the blended fc to a bc is a handling drill that would be really usefull in this class, that’s why we are also practising it at our “real” agility class. Just for your information, here is a short video (starting sequence of our last competition) where my trainer adviced me to do a “Ketschker” and in spite of Dizzy first refusing to jump into… Read more »

Daisy, you thought I was too far ahead of Andy and wanted me to try this without so much of a lead out.

Shenna Lemche

I think this went ok. It was all I wanted to do during the FMFC with collection exercise so it felt nice to let it happen. ?

Shenna Lemche

Oh durp. Late night crappy editing mistakes happen I guess. ? Maybe this is the right one.

(It’s just getting painful to watch the lateness. I’m mostly learning I need to revisit his basic commitment to a line.)

Here are our first attempts. On all of the sequences in this section, I am having trouble with him not coming through the gap. I finally sat him behind jump 2 and had a treat in the hand I wanted him to go to, which he could do but didn’t seem to do it when I went back to the full sequence. Not sure what I am doing wrong, if he just doesn’t have experience with this and doesn’t understand. I did a few to the other side as I realized I was doing them all to the same side.… Read more »

Thank you Daisy-no worries I knew you had been traveling and I am probably behind where a lot of people are. I have some video of the push to post with the problem of him not coming through the gap continues. I think that you are correct that he is just seeing the line and going for it, although he doesn’t really have a ton of experience with any courses, he is 18 months old and has literally done 3 days of AKC. We take classes with Lori Michaels and I think she mixes it up pretty well, so I… Read more »

If I pick up Darcy with my left arm as she comes over 2 and then use that arm to signal the jump while I turn away from her, she pulls off the jump each time. The only way this worked with Darcy is when I used my right arm to send to the jump while turning my back on her to move towards 4. I am twisting my body but she understands to go behind me to the jump as I move away. Not sure if this is the most efficient way to do this, and not sure why… Read more »

Daisy, this is our blended front into a blind cross.

Would you mind addressing an off-topic? I’m wondering if you have any tricks for someone whose arms fly around (even when I’m trying not to!). Looking at all these videos has made it more obvious to me.

Dear Daisy indeed i see the difference at 0:13 ! I shall repeat it and resend to you. I understand now the concept, as you describe for obtaining a great Turn on jump3.

Thanks 🙂

Hi Daisy, I have been out for a while with a foot injury, so I have really fallen behind… anyway here is our blended into a blind

Jenni Young

Thank you Daisy, now that you pointed it out I can clearly see the difference I remember feeling the difference when I ran the last one I didn’t feel as comfortable. My foot is a lot better thank you 🙂

Hello Daisy, now I know the reason for his wide landing traversing the left turn. Indeed, a perfect Handling program for me. Thank You.
