Wednesday November 29th 2006 - Novice 3, class #5

(Backfilled in October 2009 due to impending closure of Geocities)

Did more work on the flip around a jump standard. Ran a sequence starting with a jump, 90d left to weaves, tunnel, back to weaves. He got the difficult offside entry, which I was suprised but happy about, but then on the return pass I was ahead of him on the near side as he entered the poles and he entered at the second pole, twice. The instructor suggested that we need more practice with him nailing the entry while I'm ahead of him. We learned something new tonight: jumps at 270d. On the first try the instructor put a pair of standards to represent an imaginary jump between the two jumps, then on the second try she removed it and we are supposed to run the dog as if there is an imaginary jump to help guide them through a good path between the two jumps.
