Jane Demonstrates the Jaakko, German and Double Lapturn

Jane Christensen and her two dogs Do It and Jiggy do a super job of demonstrating some of the harder handling maneuvers.

At the beginning you will see them perform the German turn, “send behind the jump to a blind,” along with the Jaakko turn.

The Jaakko turn is where the handler turns the opposite way or with their back to the jump, a maneuver some don’t like because you lose sight of the dog.

In the middle of the video they demonstrate all three turns and at the end is the double lapturn described by Jane as, “calling the dog to your lap and turning around while the dog is wrapping the jump.”

All three are amazing to watch and give you such advantage on course no matter your level of competition.
