Advanced Course: International Evil - 20-Apr-2011

21 Apr 2011Steve Schwarz

I’ve been playing around with more International style courses lately and came up with this course primarily to work on Back Side Back Side/Back Side JumpHandling the Quad Back Side - Patrick Bucher Course/VideoThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesBack Side of Jump Handling Combinations - Video to 180 handling. I was inspired by a recent Dan Butcher JWW course that featured this element. The rest of the course is the usual mix of Jump Wraps Jump Wrap/WrapJump Wrap Handling - With VideoJump Wrap Handling Tips, etc. with a bunch of off course “opportunities” on an otherwise pretty open course. It was a chance for my students to see that International elements aren’t evil!

If you are working in a small space just set up 1-8. That’s what I used with my Intermediate group to get them more fluid with the handling. You could replace the A Frame with a jump to get your dog to the far side of the tunnel.

I’ll come back and post more handling notes later - for now can you come up with four ways to handle 6-7-8?
