Esteban Demonstrates the Threadle-Rear Cross vs Push Through

If you are a beginner or intermediate dog agility handler then you may have heard these terms and not known what they are.

Esteban does a super job of demonstrating them both at regular speed, then they run it in slo-mo and finally overlap.

You can really get an idea of the differences and how the affect the dog’s performance, though with this dog it is minimal until the landing point on the final jump.

The Push or Push Through is a verbal and/or physical cue given to the dog to execute the backside of a jump.

The Threadle is when the handler pulls the dog through two obstacles to execute the obstacles on the same side.

The Rear Cross is when the handler changes sides on the dog by passing over the dog’s line behind the dog.
