How to Teach The Dog Agility Lateral Lead Out Pivot

The SLS and Lead Out can be very beneficial on more difficult courses and the Lateral Lead Out even more so.

The Lead Out allows you go get ahead of a fast dog and can encourage a slower dog to speed up trying to catch you.

It also gives you freedom to give your dog help on a course such as blocking a trap or setting them up for a hard line.

This video does a super job of showing you how to break down the training of the Lateral Lead Out into small steps.

Be sure to spend as much time at each step as your dog needs and go back to the step your dog did correctly if your dog tries to go around the jump instead of over.

You can either start your position as this handler has or face the same direction as the dog and do a full rotation.
