Here’s a sequence containing 270s 270 Degree Jump SequenceBack Side Entry to 270/Training Opportunity - VideoHandling 270 Degree Jump Sequences, Jump Wraps Jump Wrap/WrapHandling 360 Jump Wraps aka "Over and Over" - VideoJump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap Handling - With Video, Pull Throughs, and some interesting handling options from my Advanced classes this week at For Your Canine. It is a little smaller and tighter course than I typically design, but we were tight for space and obstacles. I’ve written up some handling notes and a diagram, let me know if you have any questions.

Sequence 1

Success on this course depended on a knowing you/your dog’s skills and cueing collection when needed. Here are some handling notes:

See the diagram below for two ways to handle 7-10. The green handling with the Scoop over the last jump worked wonderfully, as long as you can support the back side of the 2nd jump of the 270. Then call/cue your dog to come in to you (it looks to your dog just like a Jump Wrap Jump Wrap/WrapHandling 360 Jump Wraps aka "Over and Over" - VideoJump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap Handling - With Video. It is important to get ahead on the wrap so you can set the line over jump 9.

Using the blue handling, just get “in the pocket” turning the dog around to your right and then switch to a left arm to signal the Jump Wrap. Then drive forward over jump 9.

Coming out of the tunnel, some collection on the way to 11 and show the dog lateral motion toward 12. Layer the tunnel wasn’t much of an option with the layout of the tunnel and the post. But running the outside gave the clearest indication to the dog of the correct path.

Obstacles 16-17-18 worked with dog on left and just Shoulder Pulling all the way around. Then straight on to the ending.

I do want to hear from you if you set up these sequences!
