Dogs 12 months and older: 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 as much as possible.

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. Duration: 3 months
