Here's a little quiz based on the video. This quiz is my own and does not necessarily reflect the OMD approach. However, I hope it does. Always check with the true OMD expert coaches. I hope to be one someday, but am not one (yet). :)

1. (T or F?) When the dog comes out of the tunnel first look the dog to make a connection.
2. (T or F?) Waiving your hands quickly and energetically is more important that stepping toward the next obstacle.
3. (T or F?) It is good to calm down your hands.
4. (T or F?) See connection, then step toward obstacle and go.
5. (T or F?) Turn and point toes toward the next obstacle.
6. (T of F?) Look the dog and see commitment; then turn and wait for dog to finish the obstacle to be sure.

Check you answers below the dotted line:
- - - -
1. Yes, When the dog comes out of the tunnel first look the dog to make a connection.

2. Oops, waiving your hands quickly and energetically is much *less* important than the feet.
3. Yes, It is good to calm down your hands (and focus on your chest laser and feet.)
4. Yes, see connection, then step toward obstacle and go.
5. Yes, turn and point toes toward the next obstacle.
6. Oops, the correct way is to Look the dog and see commitment, turn and go (to cue the next obstacle). Once you see commitment don't wait around to be sure. Trust your dog.
