POLISH THE GAITING

review by: Jan Irving 2006-06-01


You need to consider "finish" or ring finesse - as I approach any corner I ask the dog to 'steady' which I use to indicate a slowing of pace for a corner or a free stand/stop - by easing the pace and length of stride the dog can do much sharper (and neater) corners without jostling and bouncing (or falling over), on corners even as sharp as in a triangle.

Likewise I usually take a step or 1.5 steps at a walk before 'breaking' into the gaiting stride.=
