We've been focusing on finding the back of a jump in class the last 2 weeks. I keep hearing how it is more and more and more common in AKC courses. I was pleased that even though we are beginners in a more advanced class, Flirt rocked it. We had our fumbles, but she got the hard things. The way we taught "build value in a jump", 180s and then 270s, leads perfectly to sending her out behind a jump.
We have had that in our classes also. This week we did jump to tunnel then had to direct the dog around to the back of the jump again and into the end of the tunnel they just came out of. Whew!
