    Here is Switch running the 3 options. I preferred option 1. I found option 3 trying to get that 2nd RC in kind of awkward. Maybe I did not have the jumps in right location.

    Pico has a hard time turning on this floor, so do your best to ignore his unnecessarily wide turns. Dizzy adjusts on this floor pretty well, but I don’t have his normal speed. Hula will jump 16″, but we are still working our way up. She is having a hard time accelerating after rear crosses. I sent the boys around a cone to start, but Hula was more successful starting from a stay. Option 1 is my preferred handling and we added some extra tunnel handling at the end of the sequences. Thanks!

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      Nice work on the handling. Watch the verbals. There seemed to be some excessive ones thrown in there. I think with Hula some sending games would be good for her to work the drive out of the turns. Maybe even some flyball training 😉

        Thank you! I do chatter a lot and I need to work on that. Pico can use the cheerleading, but I’ve been told that Dizzy gets annoyed with me. I only use left and right for rears and I have a different verbal for wraps towards me. Dizzy’s verbal is “wrap” and Pico’s is “peep.peep.peep.” (I didn’t intentionally train Pico’s that way, that’s just what I know works for him). Their names are mostly used as a “hurry up” or “pay attention something’s coming”.

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      Option 1 (reverse spin) was my favorite but I do want you to work on being earlier on the blind. He should land with you already looking over the new shoulder. Try to time the blind to be done exactly while he is in the air jumping.

        TY Jennifer! I see I was watching my dog instead of turning on that blind. 🤦🏻‍♀️ The rear cross is definitely my last choice but good to practice. We were talking in class tonight about things we do unintentionally & I was demonstrated how I throw my arms up so high on the backsides. I’ll keep working on it. 🙂

    Here’s Truman’s work on these exercises. This past weekend was our first full weekend at the AKC Open level and the courses we had showed how wise it is to practice in front of a tunnel but not do it. Our work on these sequences was great preparation for the challenges we actually faced and passed with flying colors.

    The challenge sequence is included in this video. I was surprised and pleased how well Truman did the curls. Here again I guess it’s practice makes perfect. Thanks for presenting these options!
