Weave Entrance/Exit Sequences
15 Sep 2010
I wanted to work on weave entrances and exits this week at For Your Canine. So I grabbed four jumps and a set of weave poles and came up with a bunch of sequences. These work on On and Off Side Weave Entries, Pushing on the last pole, Wrapping the last weave pole and .
I specified the handling for some of the sequences to help my students uncover handling approaches and skills on which they and their dogs needed more work. Once you’ve tried the handling I’ve specified you can also come up with alternate handling approaches. Try these with 6 poles as shown (means you have to move to beat your dog to the end), 9 poles (dog exits on the same side as they enter), and 12 weave poles for additional challenges. Lastly, don’t overdo the number of weave reps you do; they are hard on your dog.
Let me know how you did!
