Stacie Cwik Inspired Small Space Sequences
07 Jun 2023
I loved running Spark and Snap! on Stacie Cwik’s class course last week and the opening/closing made for a perfect small space practice setup. So I mashed the opening and closing together into one sequence and came up with three additional (and challenging!) training sequences.
These sequences let you work on jump wraps, 270s, back side slices/wraps, and threadles.
Here are obstacle setups in Feet and Meters. You could probably squeeze this sequence down to 40’ x 40’. Pay close attention to your dog’s path on the approach/landing to jumps near the edge of the ring. As always, adjust the spacing/location for safety.
The first sequence is the combination of Stacie’s opening and closing:
I ran these sequences at home with the boys and there are lots of ways to handle them and some interesting handling combinations:
- What if you change a threadle to a back side by changing the side of the obstacle you are on? And vice versa.
- Front, rear, or blind cross?
- Threadle wrap or threadle slice?
