Agilityflow Courses #3: Which line is faster?

.

I have been asked to do a video, where I am handling the same course in different ways. So here it is! You can handle this course in multiple ways, but try to think, which lines would be fastest for you and your dog. In last week’s video we listed things you should pay attention to when you are choosing handling techniques, so you may want to watch it first.

We tried two different handling styles with Vola and compared them to see which lines were fastest. I have to say, that the result surprised me!

Urban agility #2: Wraps and full turns

.

Wraps have been hard for me: I was always too early and the dog didn’t take the jump or I was too late and on dogs path. When we started to train wraps with lamp posts, they became so much easier!

Agilityflow Courses #2: Challenge your blind crosses

These courses can be handled in many ways, but if you want, you can really challenge your blind crosses! With these courses, you can run full speed and just enjoy working with your dog. We trained these courses with Venla and we had so much fun! Venla has been in a short summer break from agility, and this was her second time training after the break. I have to say, that I just love running with her, it is agilityflow at it’s best!

Urban agility #1: Front crosses and basic turns

.

It had been raining all day, but I really wanted to make this video for you! I was just about to put on my rain clothes and make a cool plastic bag cover for my camera, when it luckily stopped raining for a while. So we rushed out and trained some front crosses and basic turns. Vola just loves these kind of training sessions and we train agility with trees, lamp posts or poles every week!
