It didn't rain today! So I took the chance to go out and do some training. After running the course I set up yesterday with Hex and Zen, I was running out of inspiration. So I set up this two jump exercise that I had seen on two blogs that I read. It was originally posted by Bud Houston on www.agilityvision.com as something called a "Minuet". Basically the idea was small sequences that you can repeat over and over and then see how many you can do in 50 seconds. The idea is that by repeating an exercise you can sometimes get away with small handler errors at first; but then they start to compound after a few repetitions!
I then saw a post on another blog called The Agility Nerd. In this post the Agility Nerd has some videos of different ways to handle this sequence. I liked the idea and set it up for my dogs. Lisa stoppped by and I asked her to video for me.
Here is the course. Not very long as you can see! Once you try each handling method; make sure you run it the opposite way so the dog works on turns both ways. Lisa also ran Chi over the sequences and I hope to get his video up later! For now, here is Hex!
