Advanced Class Course + 2 Sequences/Video - 2009-Sep-23
24 Sep 2009
Here’s another challenging course that I created out of the previous class’ equipment layout. It has 180s and some interesting handling challenges., pull throughs,
I’ve shown some alternative obstacles in red. You can replace the chute with a set of six weave poles for a different challenge. My table is still disassembled at home so I replaced it with a jump for obstacle 11/18.
Sequence 1 Setup
Bonus Sequence 2
Bonus Sequence 3
I’ve run out of time to write up detailed handling notes. But made a video for all three sequences and two diagrams showing some handling options for the first/class sequence. The main thing to note isafter the chute is tough and would really depend on the space available between the chute and the next jumps as well as your and your dog’s speed. I preferred the but I had a couple students get the Front Cross without getting “too” much in their dog’s way… Sometimes a rear cross is really the best handling!
Handling the Opening
Handling After the Chute
Here’s a video showing some handling options for the whole first sequence. The second half of the video shows as many handling options for the “interesting” parts as I could come up with.
Please leave a comment on how you ran this course and the issues you encountered!
