Demonstration and Analysis

  • Collene says:

    On the Challenge: What about threadl wrap the other wing on jump 5 (so it ends up being a threadl RC loop de loo)? Then taking dog on R over 6 into tunnel.

    On my setup, this gave my dog a more direct line into the tunnel so they didn’t have to turn or bank as much as doing the thread-slice-FC in the demo.

    The main thing for me seemed to be to make sure I got situated in the right place to do the RC (i.e. too shallow and you turn and run into 6) and then trusting dog to wrap correctly & getting out ahead so I could set the line to the tunnel.

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      Great thought. This is absolutely a spot where a foot difference in relative positions of 5, 6, or 7 could absolutely change the result of which way is faster. The slice always gets a “point” over the loop. The distance to the next jump is th same since the jumps are basically in a line and parallel. So depending on the exact line, the loop could have the better path to what’s next. Of course, that just makes it a tie based on the points system. If the path on the slice is better to the tunnel, then we have a clear 2-0 victory to the slice.

  • Collene says:

    Is there a difference in your handling between Ex 1 and your German Turn in Handling Options for Exercises #1? To me, the main difference seems more commitment level/familiarity of the dog with the handling move you are making as opposed to different handling.

    Also, I haven’t watched the Nationals yet, so question on original course. Where would you put your cross for what comes directly after these exercises (15-18)? I’d think putting a FC 15-16 would potentially drive your dog too long on 15. So it seems like a FC or BC after teeter 16 would be a better idea. Just trying to think about whether I should end exercises on L or R of 4 for the full simulation effect 🙂

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      “Is there a difference in your handling between Ex 1 and your German Turn in Handling Options for Exercises #1? ”

      You are correct – no difference. With Exercises #1, we just did the German Turn as a solution for left to right S path. In the handling options, I showed multiple options including a repeat of that German Turn, but with a different dog.

      • Collene says:

        Thx, thought so! but just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something since you so specifically mentioned it by name in the one video and not the other.

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      You are correct, a FC before the teeter really opens up that off course jump. I would say the vast vast vast majority of people either RC the teeter, or FC/BC the end of the teeter.
