Submission constitutes permission for Clean Run, at its sole discretion, to use the submitted materials, in whole or in part, without compensation to the submitter. Detailed information on the format for submissions is available from the Magazine Forum at www.cleanrun.com. Please send submissions to editors@cleanrun.com. The Full Mike Developed by an innovative Bassett handler from the Northeast, the strategy of the Full Mike is to run the entire outer perimeter of the tunnel. See Figure 1. Mike suggests this maneuver for speeding up almost any slow dog. He suspects the speed increase is due to the dog sensing that this is a race she could win. Note: The Full Mike is not recommended when the tunnel is positioned under a contact obstacle.

An instructor’s role is to present new ideas and concepts to help teach material and to hone a team’s skills. A student’s role is to fine-tune established skills and to develop new ones. In evaluating an instructor’s presentation, first consider whether the suggested training approach is a good fit for your team and then decide how you might use it in your training regimen. This is where you, the student as trainer and handler, have to make a decision about which technique best serves the team. Every team is different, and one size certainly does not fit all!

No portion of the contents of Clean Run may be reproduced or reprinted without the prior written consent of Clean Run Productions, LLC. Making multiple copies of articles for distribution as a class or seminar handout, without the permission of the publisher, is unethical and illegal. If you think your students or clients would benefit from reading a particular article in Clean Run, please encourage them to purchase that issue of the magazine or subscribe. MISSION STATEMENT The goal of each issue of Clean Run is to document and explain both basic and advanced handling and training techniques for individual agility competitors as well as instructors, support humane training methods, support the agility community through education and communication, and present varying viewpoints through editorials and letters.
