Hungarian Cross aka Kabai Cross [video]

Learn a handling technique called Hungarian Cross aka Kabai Cross! In the Hungarian Cross the handler moves to the landing side of an obstacle as the dog is approaching perpendicular to the obstacle from the takeoff side. The Hungarian Cross is an effective way to avoid off course obstacles located behind a jump.

Momo has a great table stay. So I'm thinking it might be effective and fun to do a Hungarian cross after a table stay Currently I am using a Human arrow after a table stay and it works great. To use a Hungarian Cross after the table stay I would position myself behind the jump and off to one side. Then when the judge says "Go," would start the Hungarian cross. Your thoughts anyone? You can see Momo doing the Human Arrow after a Table Stay in the Standard Run here:

Hi Phil,
If the course was set up so that you needed a turn with a change of sides on the jump after the table then yes, a Kabai / Hungarian Cross would work in such a situation. :)
