Backyard Training ArtAndDogBlog

I really like the way this feels with Jake and I think it might be better for NADAC courses than true running contacts because it gives the handler a moment to connect and direct the dog to the next obstacle vs. having to rely on verbal cues such as GO ON, RIGHT, and LEFT if the handler is very far behind the dog.

Jumping ArtAndDogBlog

8″ Class ArtAndDogBlog

I really love USDAA courses but I do not love the apparent randomness of obstacle specifications for the 8″ class. In particular, I believe USDAA’s 5’6″ A-Frame puts my 8″ dogs at a greater risk for injury since we also compete in other venues where the A-Frame is 5′ high.

Agility Training ArtAndDogBlog

Everything appeared to be going very well and by the time Lil was 2.5 years old, she was running Masters level courses in USDAA with good consistency and speed.

A Short Post About Snooker Super Qs In USDAA ArtAndDogBlog

However, instead of making courses more challenging via course design or reducing SCT (Standard Course Times), which would make qualifying more difficult, USDAA opted to invent the Super Q. This might have been a smart business decision since competitors need to enter a lot more Snooker classes to get their three required Super Qs which means

Thoughts About Jump Heights Plus New Videos From Last

Here are a few of Lil’s runs at a NADAC trial, December 15-16, 2012. There are two reasons I may not raise Lil’s jump height back to 8″. The first is because she can run agility courses faster jumping 4″ and appears to be having more fun as a result.

Running Contacts ArtAndDogBlog

Her question was related to what agility courses would look like if they were based on canine vision vs. human vision. Apparently this got me thinking about agility specifications in a much broader sense, so when I stumbled upon this video from 2010 of a method I experimented with in hopes of training my dogs to perform the A-frame as safely as

Jake Has Something In Common With World-class Platform

Jake has something in common with world-class platform divers. Posted on June 24, 2013. by Dev. Check out the dives beginning at 4:35 and 6:36 and notice how very deliberate, yet unusual each diver’s “pre-striding” looks.

Using Body Motion As Pre-cues For Tunnels And Barrels

Many handlers use body and motion to pre-cue turns after jumps and contacts but based on my observations watching teams running NADAC, AKC, and USDAA courses, I am surprised by how few handlers pre-cue tunnels (with body motion) to show their dogs the path AFTER the tunnel BEFORE their dogs enter the tunnel. IMO, this causes many dogs to slow

Running Agility In An Active Horsn Arena ArtAndDogBlog

Jake earned his Open Chances Title and ran some beautiful Open Standard and Jumpers Courses.

The Benefits Of Mark Training ArtAndDogBlog

A. Mark training can change a dog’s mental/ emotional association with agility obstacles. “Emotional Anchor” is a great description of what dogs look like when stopping on marks after being higher than kites.

Tunnels ArtAndDogBlog

Red and green look rather brown-ish. I make mental notes about the color of tunnels when walking courses as I believe yellow and blue tunnels are more likely to “suck in” a dog 🙂 than a red or green tunnel, especially if the tunnel is part of a contact/ tunnel discrimination.

Shifting Attitudes About Jumping ArtAndDogBlog

Many people think widely spaced jumps are difficult for their dogs to cope with and I tend to agree unless dogs have been trained on widely space jumps from the beginning and thus have experience approaching jumps while running fast and with extended strides vs. running courses with tighter spacing and running in semi-collection most of the time.
