I don’t think so - in the German you do not perform the blind until the dog has landed and you have moved off in the direction of the take off side of the jump - handler looks at the dog until take off and then moves around the wing and then performs the blind as the dog comes around. In the video above the blind is made by the handler before take off and the direction is away from the take off point, not towards it. I think😊👍

Is this not a German turn?

Hi Phillippe, here are two photos to show you the difference between the lines that the German and Backside Blind make.

The German is for the S type line for the dog. The backside blind line the dog takes is not as sharp ending of the S.

Good question Philippe, in German the dog wraps the exiting wing and continues on the take off side of the jump. In backside Blind the dog slices and continues in extension on a straight line or with a slight turn from the landing side of the jump as you can see in this video
