Improving Distance Handling With a Hoop Part 3

This is the final video of how this handler not only introduced the hoop to her ex-agility dog, but how she added distance as well.

This series has been really nice as she is working with a terrier and it really gives a feel for what many of us will encounter.

Even though her dog was accustomed to agility, she still had to go through the steps to teach, proof and add distance to this “new” obstacle.

And while you could use low jumps, standards alone, or even single poles, if you use hoops you will also be ready to play games that have hoops.

Hoopers is a super ground speed game that can showcase your handling of a fast dog or give older or injured dogs a game they can play.
