Rear Cross Problems: Video Analysis!

by | Jan 22, 2021 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

Today's blog is more of a vlog – since there will be two videos and not a lot of words!

The purpose of these videos is to show some common rear cross problems and why they might be happening.

In this first video, I am cueing rear crosses vs wraps with Shock on my left side. You get to see her confuse my rear cross cue with just my decel cue, and what I did to solve that problem.

In the second video, I am cueing a rear cross vs wraps with Shock on my right side. You get to see a completely different issue with regards to how Shock perceives the pressure of my motion behind her line.


Maybe you have had these issues in the past, maybe you're dealing with them currently, or know someone that is – either way, I hope these videos are helpful to you!

    Thank you. That was so helpful. So many subtle things going on that are hard to pick up what is really going on when training.

I have been training in agility nearly my entire life. With seventeen years of experience, I have had the opportunities to work with hundreds of dogs within a large variety of breeds.

I began my agility journey with an American Eskimo and a Westie. In 1999, I began competing with my first Shetland Sheepdog, Buddy. Buddy’s lesson to me was about connection and bond. While running him, I knew that agility was what I was meant to do.
