    I like your process of analysis – taking stock of the strengths and weaknesses of each dog and sort of pep talking to yourself about what you know they will nail and then having a plan for the rest.

    For my system, turning into the dog at 14 that way is almost like a bypass cue that would mean DON’t take 15 and the dog would expect something more like heading back to 13 or even 10. It is great to see all the different cue “languages” (regional dialects? accents?) there are.

      I appreciate the feedback regarding the discussion of my thought process. I 100% agree that knowing your dogs – their strengths, their weaknesses- is a big part of the game when it come to competition. In training, you get to work the weakness and train through failures. It a trial, you have to know what you have and adjust accordingly.

      I too enjoy seeing different styles, but my favorite is hearing the different commands people use which often can be regional too. “Teeter” vs “SeeSaw” for example 😉

      • Collene says:

        Yes I smirk a bit because you always seem to be so complete in saying the entire “teeter totter” phrase – at least in the BDA discussion videos.

        My cue word for that obstacle is “BANG” cuz my first agility dog seemed to actually love to wham it down. One time, so hard it actually bumped him off. He turned around and got on his hind legs and caught the end before it could go back up, brought it down and perfectly 2o2o with a big happy grin. Wish I had that on video – he is gone now 🙂

        • Jennifer Crank says:

          I never even realized I say “teeter totter” when I discuss & analyze things. Hehe. It sounds so formal. I don’t think I say that when I teach live and I certainly don’t tell my dogs that cue.

          “Bang” is actually Taylor and Sting’s cue too!! It started as a puppy with a generic “go bang it” as I talked to them and trained and now I just say “bag”.
