Expanded Description:

Training an independent stopped contact allows you, the handler, freer movement around the course, and the ability to get into position to cue upcoming challenges.

This book contains 59 training steps designed to be completed over 30 days to improve the specific skills that are critical to achieving a fast, reliable stopped contact performance:

*Speed: Your dog must enter the contact with speed and continue to stride over the contact until he moves into his target position.

*Control: Your dog must have the reinforcement history to make stopping in the target position more rewarding than running to the next obstacle.

*Target Position: Your dog must stride quickly into position without creeping or slowing down more than is physically necessary.

*Entries: Your dog must enter the contact safely and at an angle that allows him to maintain his speed over the entire piece of equipment.

*Exits: Your dog must maintain his target position until you verbally release him from the contact. In addition, your dog must understand verbal cues telling him to turn toward you and/or away from you at the contact exit.

By dissecting each aspect of your dog’s performance, you can reward one specific behavior at a time; thereby helping you clarify to your dog how you want the entire piece of equipment completed.

If you have a new dog, start at step 1. But if you have a dog already competing and you are trying to improve your dog’s speed over the contacts, for example, go through the book and review the training steps designed to improve speed. Or, if your dog needs a bit more self-control, complete the training steps designed to improve that one specific skill. In this way you will be able to customize a training plan tailored to you and your dog.

Amanda Shyne has been competing in dog agility for 10 years. She and her Border Collie Dilly were the 2007 and 2009 USDAA Northeast Regional Grand Prix of Dog Agility winners in the 22" class.
