    I set up this course in my yard and did it before listening to the map analysis to test my course reading skills. For the most part my handling path used the front crosses you suggested, although with more lateral distance than most likely use, To handle the dog walk sequence my first thought was to run parallel to the DW and layer the panel jump leaving me on the landing side of 14. My dogs have stop contacts so this worked pretty well for me. My older dog is not as consistent at going to the end of the board and holding (she can sometimes turn sideways before reaching the end) when I’m far away, so I also tried a blind at the end of the DW with her followed by a rear before the tunnel. This worked pretty well too.

    I have a RDW so I can either keep DOL or do a BC before my dog gets to the contact zone. I would never make it to the end before her. Which would you think would be a better line/option going into the jump& tunnel, with DOL or DOR?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      You mentioned you could do a BC before your dog gets to the contact zone but then also said you would never make it so the end before her. You will only be able to do a BC at the end of the dogwalk if you are ahead. If you can fade lateral while your dog does the dog walk then I would do dog on left all the way from DW-jump-tunnel.

    My favorite part of this analysis is after the dog walk. Even if I have the skill to move away laterally, would it possibly benefit me to cross instead?

    • ksheehan3 says:

      Maybe more to point, would is this be a good place to take advantage of having that particular skill? And what if it is like 90 percent?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      If I was running this course, I would have crossed after the DW and rear crossed the tunnel even though I am pretty confident I have the skill. I often as myself, “is the risk worth the reward?” In this case for this event, better safe than sorry.

      If you have the skill and have used it in competition, I think you can trust your training and do dog on left off the DW and to the tunnel.
