Great View of Advanced Dog Agility Jump Handling

Maarit Pohjola and her beautiful and talented Shetland Sheepdog give you a great example of the serpentine, push, and threadle.

This is obviously a more advanced team using these handling skills and watching them helps you see the differences.

You can see the timing of her cues and the subtle differences that tell her dog what is expected in time for a correct move.

While timing and placement have a huge bearing on the dog’s line, experience in the dog allows the handler some leeway.

You will notice there is no hesitation or confusion from the dog as Maarit confidently guides him through the obstacles.

If this video helped you to see the differences in these moves, be sure to share it with your friends so they can learn as well.
