Eliska Teaches 2on 2off Dog Agility Contacts Pt 1

There are many variations on the idea of teaching 2 on 2 off dog agility contacts like this one.

Using an object such as a piece of carpet/cardboard or even a pvc pipe box gives clarity to the dog.

Some will even use a small board painted with contact colors with the idea it will transfer better.

Also called back chaining, this method teaches the end behavior before adding the obstacle.

The only change we would make to this particular program is the verbiage as “Stop” can lead to confusion for the handler.

If your team is going to use a 2on 2off contact, this is a great way to get started on the cue. Click here to see Part 2.
