    Enjoyed playing with these sequences this evening after work! I did the first two exercises with my puppy (almost 1 year old) as well. Looking forward to your feedback, thanks!

      • Kayla Swanberg says:

        Thank you! These are always so helpful 🙂

        I’m not sure why I put that front cross in on the 2nd exercise with Carat but I try really hard to keep running and make it work vs abruptly stopping and restarting which is very demotivating for my dogs.

        I figured the turn to the right would be faster (it’s what I would choose in competition) but really like working on all the handling options to keep them available as options.

        I’ll watch for places where it may be beneficial to shape their line to reduce the jump slicing to set them up for a better line ahead as well, thank you!

    Here’s Jake’s attempt.

    Monty’s work!! My favorite thing was I ran the challenge the way I felt was best before I watch your video and our handling choices actually matched this time!! It was a first!! 🤣

    Was able to get outside to do this where the footing is MUCh better even though terrain has a slight slope.

    Here is Jury’s go on the nested challenge. I also tried a wrap on #3.

  • KMAC says:

    On the challenge sequence, you had clear decel from 3 to 4, but I did not see much decel from 7 to 8. Was there a reason for that? Thanks for your feedback!

    Hi team,

    Here is my challenge sequence video.

    Sorry about the extra noise.


  • Barbara Lewis says:

    1. Sound track issue in Exercise 2. I think I read a note to that effect but not sure whether you fixed it or not.
    2. Re (sp?) Jacco turn: is it a rear cross and turning (shudder) into the dog in order to get that beautiful tight turn. Do you have a reference in your archives that discusses the jaccot turn?

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      1. Do you mean the earlier lessons with the map analysis and the full run? That full run doesn’t have sound. But this particular page seems ok!
      2. The Jaakko is a One Mind Dog technique. I wouldn’t classify it as a rear, but as a specialized blind cross at a wing wrap. Instead of turning with the dog, you turn against the dog (you turn toward them as they turn toward you going behind your back). You end up with the dog on the same side as you started. Dog on right in this case, you start w dog on right, do the jaakko and end with dog on right.

      We do have VIP videos demonstrating the jaakko further, but nothing in our public archives. Here is a link that shows it several times with a preview video on the OMD website:

      You don’t have to do the jaakko either. You can just decel and then turn with the dog (post turn).
