Splitty and the A-Frame

Well, I made the decision to move Split back to a 2o2o A-Frame. Not really happy about it, but I just could not figure out how to communicate the running contact with him (familiar problem from Tip's dogwalk).

Split is such an honest boy. Once he figured out the new rules, he is trying his best to comply and stop at the end. He and I just need to put some practice and many configurations on top of the knowledge and he will be as good as gold.

Last night I introduced front crossed at the end of the A-Frame. Threw him off a couple of times, but then was right with me and waited.

Interesting side watching the contact 360 video, Amanda had a side note about the release word. Split will NOT release on his release word at the end of the A-Frame. He needs the movement with the word (he doesn't release on just movement thankfully).
