    Fun course…Gail Storm was one of our judges at the last trials I attended and based on those I’d say this coruse was not entirely typical of her designs. More open and flowing. I quite liked your suggested rear cross between 3 and 4 but I also tried the lead out push (from the landing side of 3) and I think it worked equally well for me although I would likely have chosen to do the rear for real. Your suggestion of staying closer to the tunnel exit to control the turn was also a good one. I used a RC on the take off side of 12 and got a pretty nice turn but it put me behind enough that I had to wrap the right wing of 15 and the wrap was wide because I was late. I’m not sure there is anything I can do to improve that than just run faster!

    What is the disadvantage to a blind between 10!and 11 and then handling the teeter with dog on left?

    • Esteban Fernandezlopez says:

      That will generally lead to a wide turn where the dog sees the #1 off course jump first which causes them to take #10 in extension, and when you correct for that, they see the #15 off course next.

    • Sri Kothur (& Abbey) says:

      When I see a turn that is 90 degrees or less (sharper), I will always opt for a front cross or decel and do a side change after the second obstacle. Depending on the dog’s stride, this is about a 60 degree turn from 10 to 11(teeter ).
