    Here is our Challenge for Set 2
    I probably should have combined this file with the Exercise file.
    I will try to do that in the future.
    Thank you.

    Here is our Set 2 Exercise
    When I played it in slow motion in Coaches Eye I noticed Andy looked briefly at me when going over jump #1 in the first exercise where we do a rear cross. Is that ok?
    I used my offside arm to indicate the correct side of the tunnel and maybe he was just checking in with me on that?
    I’m only concerned because that could have caused a knocked bar but I don’t know what I would have done differently. Thanks.

    Just got a chance to set these up this morning with my younger dog TJ. The rear felt like the safer choice with him (we are still learning each other on the timing of a blind….). Appreciate any feedback!

    On the challenge: There is a choice at 2 for which way to turn. The wrap as you demo OR the slice.

    I was thinking the slice ***might*** be a good choice for larger or less bendy dogs – what do you think?

    My thought is that the wrap of 2 really sets the dog up to be heading in the wrong direction over 3 for the rest of the course. Whereas the slice on 2 (maybe doing with a BC turn into the dog as he commits to encourage tightness) sets up a nicer arc path to the rest of the course that maybe makes up for the extra distance.

    Hi Sarah – How would you have handled the USDAA Starter Course 1-4 that would have preceeded the exercise sequence? On the map it looks a little tricky as nothing quuuuite lines up.

    For example, I could easily see doing dog on right and then RC tunnel 4 entrance because that feels more “inside the curve” and more of pulls to obstacles. But I am betting that would put you massively behind to do much after that – I think you’d then have to do the threadl/RC at the next tunnel as you demo’d in the exercise.

    Dog on left from the start feels too “pushy”.

    Doing a running start dog on right and BC 2-3 seems like it could be an option but also a disaster encouraging your dog to look hard at the wrong end of the tunnel 4.

    So anyway, just curious on your thoughts. Thanks!

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      It’s going to depend a lot on the EXACT setup. I think the first option I would try is Dog on Left, lining up 1-2-3 which is going to be a pretty slicey approach to all three jumps, including the double, but then they land on a nice arc to the #4 tunnel. The ring gate itself might get in the way of that plan. And you HAVE to lead out at least to 2 so you can be ahead on 3 so the dog doesn’t start turning toward you on that line.

      I think handling 1-2-3 dog on right is still not quite the inside of the curve, as you originally noted, things don’t quite line up. It’s a bit of a “long serp” over 2, so you need to be ahead turning slightly toward the dog as they commit to 2 then back to the line for number 3. This does put you behind as you rear 4, in fact so much so that I think you have to threadle rear 6 and threadle rear 7, I don’t think you can make the FC after the #6 RC.

      You are right about a blind from 2-3 pulling the dog toward the wrong tunnel. You could also do a FC basically in the flat 1-2. So that you have the dog take number 1 “straight north” then finish the front so they’re more square to 2. But you have to run like mad because the more square they take 2 the more they are taking the 3 towards the wrong tunnel, so you have to be ahead to essentially serp 3!

      It really is an interesting course all in all, especially for starters!

    Hi Sarah, Just me or is the Challenge video different to the Challenge course map?

  • Hdickin580 says:

    Is C where camera should go? 1 with no obstacle where dog starts?
