NQ And for the same reason- Caleb decided to buzz the ring after the jump again. The good news is he only got a few feet away. AND, we think we know why he did it this time- our instructora and a student who was watching said I sped up as I approached the jump and gave him a sweeping signal to take it. The picture Ken just showed me of that station confirms it. So, at least I know how to fix it. Hope everyone else who competed this weekend had a better results than we did!
"buzz the ring"?
also known as "pulling a Sophie"
Better luck next time, glad you were able to identify a clear cause...
In rally, I tell Miles "heel" while he is jumping and I don't accelerate for that jump. He doesn't need it. I do agility with him so I do have to remind him to come heel after the jump. 16" is not a challenge for these labs so you don't need much of a running start. They do think it is fun, so it lights them up a bit.
