Dearlove Nested Class Course - Jul 25 & Aug 1 2005
23 Jul 2005
This course works Beginners oninto the tunnel and after a jump (Rear Cross on the Flat). Intermediate teams work a and an interesting jumping sequence containing a . The Advanced groups work on tight , a 270, and a jump sequence.
A pretty straight forward exercise that can be broken at the table. It should also be run backwards to allow the handler’s to work the Rear Cross from both sides. It may be helpful to change the angle/location of jump 5 to ease the approach to jump 6.
Have the handlers walk the course and run it once without a specified handling. Then discuss the following handling options:
- Looks like getting into position on the from the exit of 4 to jump 5 would be helpful in shaping the dog's path into the
- or on the landing side of jump 6?
- Which side of the 8-9-10-11 sequence to start on? Rear Crossing or Front Crossing? Where to cross?
- Decelerate before jump 11 so you don't cue a long stride.
There is a focus on tight wraps around jumps in this sequence.
- I'm thinking either a Lateral Lead Out on the between jumps 2 and 3 or a in the same location.
- Which way to turn the dog over jump 3?
- Pull on the dog's line through jump 6. Front or Rear Cross jump 5 to jump 6.
- Get in position for the . Where is your ?
- or on the landing side of jump 9?
- Which side for handling jumps 11-12-13-14? I'm thinking 11 and 12 on the handler's right and Rear Crossing before Jump 13. But Pull over 11 and Push over 12 to 13 will work if the handler is far enough ahead after jump 11.
- Looks like Rear Cross between jumps 17-18
