Fun drill - good skills

I wanted to work on our tunnel skills this week.  I have noticed that we are getting courses where it requires us to go to the non-obvious side of the tunnel at times.  Also, Tangle and I just needed to "play".  No tight course, just something where we can both run, but still improving skills.

I ran the whole circle of this course each time.  Varying which end of the tunnel that I would cue, or even if we took the tunnel. 

Things to watch:
  • How soon the dog commits to the tunnel vs a jump
  • What is the difference in your cue for the far end of the tunnel vs the far jump (so running past the tunnel)
  • Does the dog have drive all the way to the close end of the tunnel, far end, and jump.  If not, you are either unclear or not timely.
