The Value of the Rear Cross and Proper Timing in Dog Agility

This is an excellent video that shows not only the benefits of mastering the rear cross but timing of the verbal as well.

She also explains to you what leads are and how they affect your dog during the turns and the overall line.

Especially in the beginning your dog wants to be with you and this tendency can work against you or to your benefit as you will see.

Proper timing plays a big part in your dog’s performance as well, letting your dog know where you are going before they need a lead change is paramount.

Even with a correctly executed rear, if your dog doesn’t see you change before they take off, they could still land on the incorrect lead.
