When mastering Distance makes a difference
« on: September 25, 2008, 10:03:31 AM »
Last night we ran this course (sorry about my bad drawing skills).   The purpose of the course was for us to work on rear crosses at 5&10.    Also to use correct body language coming off jump 10 so your dog goes to 11 and not to the tunnel.    Another thing we had to do was rear cross sending dog into tunnel and then immediately getting them to A-Frame out of the end.      I watched Renee's Video of Anja doing her Novice B, and really realized on her second to last jump when she did a perfect rear, that having distance with Anja makes  a heck of a lot of difference.    Hanna is running a little close so when going over 4&9 I had to pull her a bit left/right (depending on the way you were running) to get enough room to send her over 5&10.   Plus she is super fast, so now that I have the speed, thinking working more on distance is where we will benefit in running courses.
