Small Sequences For Technique Application

Apply 7 different handling techniques on a course of only 7 obstacles! Two differently numbered sequences on the same course set up of only six jumps and one tunnel allow you to practice many techniques without much equipment or space. These exercises are designed by OneMind Dogs Assistant Coach and Agility Judge, Marko Mäkelä.

How great to see more exercises for small spaces! We are in the middle of a snowstorm here in the Northeastern US, but I look forward to setting these up this Spring once it all melts!

Hi Mark, we tried both of your sequences and then put them together in one run! Forgive me, but I have a disability and some spasticity with it due to skeletal changes. In course 1 I found it much easier to start with a Jaakko Turn on jump 1 and then do my Bind Cross much closer to jump 3. But from reading your notes, I figured that was probably wrong, that I had a lead-out and could run into position to blind cross before the dog took jump 2. Eventually I wondered whether I should have tried tried the other wing of jump 1, but that meant quite a push over to jump 3? In the second sequence, I encountered a stubborn off-course problem with the off-course tunnel from jump 4 to jump 5. I managed to record one successful effort with a False Turn, but when I put the two sequences together, I had to replace the False Turn with a Forced Front Cross to a Jaakko Turn, to convince Panda that I really did not want the tunnel - regardless how much he liked it... The virtual dog did jump 1 with a Jaakko (unintentionally), also did three False Turns from 1 - 2, 3 -4, and 5 - 6 in the second sequence. The real dog responded better to a Reverse Spin between 1 - 2, plus the FFX/Jaakko on 4. I only just make it to the very last Blind Cross without getting my heals clipped... Here it is! Please do not expect a world championship run!😂 Thank you so much for this great exercise!❤️🐼

It is really nice and good content. Especially for those who practice in small spaces like me. In the future, I would like to ask you for other small sequences and detailed explanations.

Thanks for the feedback Yuho, we are aiming to do more sequences like this so it's great to hear that you enjoyed this!
