Hi, @Daisy Peel, here is our video for this drill:
Not quite sure if I understood this one right. Should I have waited for Dizzy to come out ouf the tunnel and lead him past the plane of 2 (like you did) or is it okay to be further ahead and cue #2 with less/no motion?
@Sabine Somehow I missed this 🙁 Both ways need to be doable – you never know how far ahead you’ll be! Of course, the further ahead you are and the less motion you have, the easier it is to be precise. But, that is not always possible. These attempts look good, and it’s possible you have a trained cue so that you can have the dog come out of the tunnel on your LEFT and cue this jump, but it’s still good to know the mechanics of how to do this ‘move’. When I say trained cue, check out obstacle… Read more »
Thank you so much @Daisy Peel for taking the time for this great feedback! Yes, you are right, the mid-course forced front is way harder to cue precisely than the lead-out forced fc. I wouldn’t even have thought about trying it without this course and I am really very happy about this opportunity to learn and try something new. What did you say about leaving our comfort zone? 😉 🙂 But I am really thrilled about learning how to cue this jump with Dizzy on my left in the December Handling Challenge, this would be a very valuable cue to… Read more »
You’re quite welcome, @Sabine 🙂
Hi Daisy, I think I should have started further back before the jump but piper read this pretty well. I kept moving her further and further away from the side I wanted her to go around to see how far she would still come to me rather than take the jump.
@CarlaBaker This is a great example of deliberate practice and training – changing a variable a little bit at a time to get a concept across – nicely done here! Good job on this lead out 🙂

@Merck Salazar Again, you’ve done a great job with this one with Delft. Nice and close to the wing, he knows just where to go 😉 basically the same as the other video, LOL
