Dog Agility Tunnel Discrimination Exercises

From an article that Alicia Nicholas wrote for Ring Around the Tunnel is a collection of exercises to improve obstacle discrimination.

The first exercise is to see how many jumps your dog can take while you run around the tunnel in 15 seconds.

Not only will it expose your dog’s abilities, it will reveal changes you need to make in your handling.

The second exercise is a bit more complicated with front, rear, blind crosses and sends which results in your dog performing a figure 8 pattern.

If at any point in these exercises you get confused, break them down into sections you and your dog can accomplish, treating often.
