When handling is restricted by individual obstacle performance issues we can miss out on some of the fun that handling can be! This week I’m using both poles and contacts as the example of obstacles that can get weak if they are not maintained properly, meaning the handler is not giving each individual dog what they actually need to keep up the good work or continually improve. It is easy to have skills erode when we handle around our training issues, opposed to fixing them. There is a teeny, tiny (I promise) plug for my 2-On/2-Off program (book, webinar and class) at the end.
