Backsides, Threadles, Serps, and 270s with Terry Herman

More Summer Fun with Two Terry Herman Workshops!

CROSSES

with Terry Herman

Wednesday, Aug. 4 • 6:30 pm – 9 pm

How do you do a Front cross? When do you do a Blind cross? Why do a Rear cross instead?

Once the dogs can do the obstacles, handlers have to learn how to direct them around a course as clearly and efficiently as possible. Three of the basic handling maneuvers for doing this are front crosses, blind crosses, and rear crosses. This workshop will deal with: how to do them correctly; when to do them; and where to do them, to give a dog the clearest possible direction. It’s aimed at the Novice handler, or anyone who needs to review the basics of these three handling staples. Dogs need to do all obstacles except weaves. Preference given to students who graduated from the AG2 class since Fall 2020.  

Cost: $25 Members / $35 Non-Members

Limited to 8 dog/handler teams

Auditors $10

Registration opens: 
Wednesday, July 28 at 8 am for Contributing members
Thursday, July 29 at 8 am for Members
Friday, July 30 at 8 am for non-members.
