Advanced Class Course + 2 Sequences/Video - 2009-Sep-23

24 Sep 2009Steve Schwarz

Here’s another challenging course that I created out of the previous class’ equipment layout. It has Jump Wraps Jump Wrap/WrapHandling 360 Jump Wraps aka "Over and Over" - VideoJump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap Handling - With Video, pull throughs, 180s and some interesting handling challenges.

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.

Handling Analysis

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 is Front Crossing Front CrossLearning the Front Cross after 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 Rear Cross Rear CrossLearning the Rear Cross 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!

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.
