I posted three smaller space "Steeplechase-ish" courses from my Masters Handling seminar on my blog with English & Metric setup dimensions. Hope you set them up this week and please let me know how you did!

USDAA republished my article on "Proactive Handling"! I should update it just a little in spots. e.g. I say the dog needs to know the information as it commits, but now I'd say as the dog prepares to commit (so the dog can prepare to change lead, extend/collect) as they commit. But one of my fave articles.

I've put together photos and ideas for making contact equipment safer in a blog post. I'm looking for photos of other unsafe aspects of contacts and ways you've made them safer for training or competition. Do you have photos of contacts with big gaps between the planks and foam/pool noodles jammed in them to keep dog's feet/nails from getting caught? Any other things I should include?

Ever been behind and afraid to blind cross a tunnel exit?? This Clean Run blog post links to a Linda Mecklenburg video demonstrating a clever training idea for a quick-release stop in the tunnel! Please use this link for the store to help support AgilityNerd's web costs: http://bit.ly/2n6ifnn

Thanks and Enjoy!

Have any US/Canadian jump height cutoffs changed since November? Just realized that I may need to update my Jump Height Calculator if rule changes happened in Jan!

Flyer and I had a blast at the first Wisconsin Agility Cup running flowing and challenging FCI style courses! I've posted the courses, some analysis, and our videos. See how you would have handled them!
