No Dog Agility Start Line Stay?

This handler’s idea of how to stop your dog from breaking a start line stay is to not have one at all.

She is very clear with her dog on all other verbal cues and makes a great run, so why not a stay?

Just as your dog has to learn to touch contacts or hold the stay on the table, isn’t the start line stay is just as crucial?

Maybe you don’t want to use a start line stay, and there are many that don’t.

But if it is an excuse for a sloppy or non existent start line stay, stop making excuses and start teaching.

If your dog was able to learn the pause table/box and contacts they too can learn a good start line stay.
