Katrin Teaches The Cross Commands Switch and Tight

This is a really neat video for more advanced handling that really should be implemented from the start as you will see.

Katrin Andberg teaches about the “Switch” and “Tight” commands and how they are not only turns but also lead changes.

You would use these commands during your front and rear crosses as your dog makes turns away (switch) and toward you (tight).

She further explains that these commands should be able to get you those lead changes without a turn to set your dog up to take an obstacle on a new lead.

In this video the dog she is working makes a great point in why this should be covered right from the start.

You will see the one-sidedness that often affects dogs and handlers from the start and how to address and fix it.
