    Thank you Sarah! Really enjoyed your circling lessons. Toast is loving the circle game!

  • cynthia says:

    Thank you Sarah, this is so valuable to me!

  • cynthia says:

    Do you ever add a verbal cue to the wrap? Like a “wrap to the right” or “wrap to the left” verbal?

    • cynthia says:

      Sorry, I did see you have “wrap” cue which is either direction. Why did you choose that instead of two directional cues?

      • Sarah Baker says:

        Wrap is just the term I use for tight turns. The actual verbal cues I teach my dogs I listed in the response above. Oh and “check” is their generic collection/turn cue.

    • Sarah Baker says:

      I add cues once the behavior is strong and predictable. My cues depend on my dog’s approach to the circle object and the directions I want them to go. I will use their wrap cues (right/left or rightrightright/leftleftleft), their backside wrap cue (Skep: back, Hops: around), or their threadle cue (in).

  • Heather says:

    How many times a day would you train? I assume with 5 to 10 minute intervals.

  • Patricia Price says:

    What is the value of multiple wraps of the jump wings for handling?

    • Sarah Baker says:

      It works on bending, commitment and paying attention to cues. And I have actually had a course where my dog was supposed to take the same jump the same way two times in a row and we did it with multiwraps!
