By Laura Manchester Derrett 1 14 9 10 13 15 11 12 8 17 18 16 This course, which is shown in Figure 1, was presented to us this year while teaching handling workshops in Australia. The course is an Advanced Jumping designed and judged by Natalie Kirkwood. At first glance it may seem like a pretty straight forward course, but as we begin to take a closer look there are some definite challenges presented. First, dogs need to have value and understanding for driving to refusal lines of equipment since this course asks for this ability at several places. Next, this course demands consistency of handler cues; without it, many dogs were eliminated trying to get from #3 to #4, #4 to #5, and also from #18 to #19. That tunnel seemed to get them a couple of times on the course. © ALISSA BEHN/PET-PERSONALITIES.COM 7 5 2 3 4 6 19 1 Advanced Jumping Australia 2011 Judge: Natalie Kirkwood 20 32 Clean Run | June 12
