Dog Agility Interrupted Front Cross

Sandy Rogers shows you examples of “Piecemeal” or Interrupted front crosses and how they affect her runs.

You will see how too many steps lead to confusion for the dog as well as a stop in motion by the handler adds time to your run.

Though she is able to keep her dog on course, there were close calls that could have been avoided if her cross was clean.

Fast dogs will be more prone to frustration with this kind of hesitation and late cuing, but any dog will perform better with better cues.

This is a perfect example of how important it is for you to practice your footwork at home until it becomes second nature.
