Just Because We Can Doesn’t Mean We Should

I’ve spent the last four days down in Berkshire on an instructors agility course with The Agility Club.

While I was there we observed lots of different breeds running agility sequences. There were quite a few small dogs running courses.

With the large breeds, the norm when setting a dog up to start a course was getting the dog to do a middle. This lined the dog up with the jump on the angle the handler wanted.

A middle is simply getting the dog to come from behind to stand in between your legs facing the way you are.
