Four Jumps - Backyard sequences Part Ten

Now that the Summer Sequencing series has wrapped up on Tuesday nights, I actually have a bit of time to toss jumps in "the van" and head over to the school to work Teller a bit before it's too dark to play outside. Here's a few more sequences in the "Four-Jump" Series - this brings us to Part Ten of the series.

A easy setup for tonight. All of these sequences should start in motion - no lead-outs today. Work Sequence #1 starting with your dog on your left side.

Start sequence #1 with your dog on your left.

The 270 turns from 2-3 and 4-5 are tough. Work on supporting the turns without babysitting those jumps.

Sequence #4: straight lines. Work to keep flow from 2-3 and 4-5

And if you are Teller, probably the best part of the afternoon was romping on the soccer fields after his whistler ball. Murphy was full of himself in the cooler autumn air. So much so that we're now soaking a torn pad. I'm not sure why - but Murphy seems especially prone to pad injuries this summer. Perhaps he's spent too much time in the pool and not enough time out and about training. I've made plans to take both the boys tracking this weekend, hopefully he'll be healed enough to do a bit of work by then.
