Hey Solo,
Get a load of this….Mom is actually studying up this international handling stuff….I told her I don't wanna go to Europe,, she says she's doing it so she'll have to run less and CC and Gemma won't turn so wide and go off course…and who do you think she's practicing with?? Moi of course.
I was at this place all day on Sunday…these sharp rear crosses at the weaves…and Mom sends me with one hand some how and picks me up with the same hand on her other side…
We go to this CAMP the end of this month…me and Gemma..oh :dk
Here is a clip

Lisa,
It looks smooth with me, cause I am Andy :neen

Mom tried to run Gemma like me and it was a train wreck. Gemma doesn't watch like I do, she's impossible and Mom gets all irritated. I think I am Mom's favorite…wish I could get rid of that C.C. He's a real pain…LOL
Mom still does these moves the best with me!!!

:wv Hi Andy Boy,

Mom can do the rear cross on the weaves with me -- our yard is so small that we always practice it that way, didn't know it was an international things.

But those back side jumps are something else. Mom is thinking of putting "back side jumping" on my summer training plans. This would mean traveling with a lot less equipment than in the past.

Hey Solo,
Mom has the backside on command for me,,,I'm the only one who listens, Gemma just goes wild and goes everywhere…but when mom says "around" then I know what I gotta do.
We get to go to a show on Sunday…I can't wait,,everyone is running,,,we only go one day and mom spends lots of money,,,C.C., Gemma, me and Jolie my doggie mom.
I hope I get QQ #12 :YAY
Good luck pal this weekend!
Your Pal
Andy Boy

Mom has been trying to figure a command for this skill. It will probably start with "out" because that tells me I am going away from Mom, but after that :dk . It may be "out, come over". But "around or get around" are obedience commands that would have me doing the wrong thing.

:cool Solo

Colleen,

My instructor uses Get Back... Initially I tried Out Around but Chessie was confused and it wasn't working. During our single jump warm up I have Chessie do figure 8's first going over the bar and around then switching and going out and coming back over the bar... I was telling her "out then back" for that but didn't think about it. Apparently, I've inadvertently trained Out Back. So...she goes Out.. and comes Back. It works for us.... or will once we train it a bit more on the run...

Out Back has the added advantage in it's easy for me to remember on the fly... Outback Steak House is a popular restaurant around here. :gig

I have heard "get back" or "backside" used and they make sense. But I can't use "get back" because I use that in obedience training/rally and I think "backside" sounds too similar.

Very cool! We want to learn this and hope our new agility class will help us with these skills. We're using push as our backside command since I use back for repeating the same obstacle.

And we've trained some weird verbals for some things like using come go come when learning serpentines. So, now my turn away from me command is go and I've been playing with teaching a go on command, but the only thing flowing out of mouth naturally is go which won't work for us.

I use "around" with Star but most people here use "push" as the command to use back side of jump.
