Clip

Here's a short clip from one of our WAO Tryout runs this past weekend. I had a good time working through the courses and found some great opportunities for blind crosses. When I'm showing people how/when to do them, I often say something like "it will help you stay ahead - what if there was a threadle up ahead?" - well in this case there WAS a threadle up ahead, and sure enough the blind crosses worked great! Cue the jump, change arms, cue the jump, change arms, don't stare at your dog, be peripherally aware only, and KEEP MOVING!

Wow, yea, seriously working the blind crosses there, don't think I've ever seen them used in a handling situation like that. Pretty cool, hard to do.

They can be difficult yes - blinds are used in this manner in Europe all the time though!
