Shadow Handling Using NADAC Barrels

A short video by Pam demonstrating some exercises to help your dog move around the NADAC barrel.

Even if you never intend to competed in NADAC, having your dog comfortable with the barrel is a great confidence builder.

At some point you will run into wing jumps where your dog could loose sight of you, this will help prepare your dog for those situations.

If your dog is unsure with that moment of abscence, start with a jump standard, chair, or cone where they do not loose sight of you.

You can then slowly increase the time they cannot see you by adding a solid object and increasing it’s width.

This is great practice for any competition dog so be sure to SHARE it with all your agility loving friends.
