Any course with multiple 270s provides handlers with numerous handling options. In the course below, Ann Croft has designed one of the most challenging practice sequences I have ever run. For handlers who don’t typically blind cross in these situations, your dog must have a strong understanding of motion, threadles, and rear crosses to be successful. I ran this course 2 ways, both without blind crosses. The option with rear crosses ran slightly slower due to wide turns from jumps #3 to #4 and jumps #14 to #15.
Thank you to Ann Croft for designing and allowing the use of her course for this analysis.
