Jumpers with Weaves, Serpentines, Wraps and a Threadle - 13-Oct-2010
14 Oct 2010
Here are a couple sequences for working on For Your Canine. This time I made handling diagrams but I’ll skimp on the descriptions…, a and general handling I threw together for my classes at
Opening of Sequence 1
Closing of Sequence 1
Some handling notes:
- 1-2-3-4 best solution is a Lead Out or 2-3 and a 3-4
- Stay on the line from tunnel to 5 and handle as a Single Sided Serpentine to the weaves
- 10-11-12: handler faster than dog think green line, handler slower than dog blue line worked nicely (remember many dogs turn toward the handler as you get behind - without other forward motion cues)
- Coming out of the chute a lot of dogs go wide. If you can get to the end of the chute for a front cross - it will help (green or yellow handling). Talk to your dog in the chute can help cue a tighter turn.
- The green line handling gets tougher as your dog gets going faster - three front crosses to a , you'll get behind unless you MOVE.
- Yellow path treats the 180 like a single sided serpentine - you have to be ahead of the dog to Push over 16, if you have to Rear Cross you were too slow.
- The blue handling requires a send to the chute and you have to call your dog back over 14 to you - easiest on the handler but some dogs whent really wide out of the chute.
Can you handle the closing all three ways? I hope you’ll try!
We had run the first sequence four times each and played with the different handling approaches. So I came up with the sequence above. The fun part is the 2-6 the Pin Wheel to Serpentine…
