[AU-033] The Handler’s Toolbox: Super Independent Backside Sends!

Learn how to teach your dog to have super independent backside send skills! This technique is designed to teach you how to train the dog and cue the behavior so that you can truly trust your dog and leave for your next position on course.

  • Amazing commitment from all angles for both slices and wraps
  • Solid verbal cues
  • Sending the dog to the backside without having to step to the backside
  • Default understanding to jump the bar, without you needing to stay there and help or cue
  • Jumping skills and games to help teach the dog to keep the bars up and not hit the wings on backside slices and wraps
  • When and how to connect properly
  • When you can disconnect and run to your next position
  • Commitment from a distance so you can move to your next spot on course
  • Creating the turns and lines you want on the exits
