    Love this exercise for rear cross – but wish it would show the position of dog and handler before starting. My dog is so much faster that I am that I’m unsure of where we should start so I give the right signal.

      Assuming the dog is starting to lift off for the jump BEFORE the jump where the rear cross will happen, you generally want to be next to him at the wing–this means the dog is driving ahead of you. If you’re too far ahead, your path will be more L-shaped and the rear will create a tighter turn. Too far back, and the dog turns less well on the rear. However, over many different situations, you want to be able to get a good rear from many different handler positions where you are ahead, behind, and far lateral to the ideal spot.

      Again, the ideal handler position at dog’s take off for the jump BEFORE the jump at which they rear is close to the wing.

    Rear Cross materials: So well put together. I look forward to the lessons with exercises and feel fairly ready to begin that series. Will spend a fair amount of time reading and studying the first or first two….without either dog. Can hardly wait.

    Would this be a good exercise to begin introducing directionals (specificallty, “left” and “right”)
