How to Add Equipment to Your Shadow Handling

Shadow handling is just what the name implies, your dog is your shadow.

This kind of control is what keeps your dog focused on your body movements around the course.

It is also the kind of control that demands you as the handler know your body movement so you don’t inadvertently throw your dog off course.

This video shows you how to add obstacles once your dog is sufficient at shadowing you on the flat.

It is a great ace up your sleeve when you need to pull your dog away from an off course or a trap using just your body.

Also a must have for dogs that tend to leave you on course to do their own show.

Be sure your dog is solid with the flat work before adding the distraction of the fun equipment.
