Take Your Front Cross To The Next Level

Front Cross is one of the first handling techniques ever invented, but still the most difficult technique to execute correctly. When we talk about the "correct" execution of the technique, we always mean what is correct from the dog's point of view. To be able to continue smoothly to the desired direction after the jump, the dog should get the necessary information about the turn well before takeoff.

In the Front Cross, as in every handling technique, all seven handling elements should support the same thing. None of the handling elements matter too much individually: it is the cue that the combination of all handling elements gives, that has the effect on the dog.

This course will offer you information about the correct execution of a Front Cross, and exercises where you can practice applying Front Crosses on a course.
