… focusing specifically on angled fronts when carrying a glove or other item. I’ve found that makes quite a difference.Judging a match this past weekend I saw an issue that has me thinking on how I might address it. Suggestions/comments welcome.
The situation: glove #2
Team turned beautifully to glove #2, dog went straight to glove #2 and retrieved it (beautifully). She turned to the right after pickup and spotted glove #3, ran over to glove #3, dropped glove #2 to sniff glove #3, picked #2 back up and delivered to a crooked front.
Very possible conditions and my thoughts on possible areas to address:
1) Tighten the turn after pickup
2) Revisit a strong recall (direct & fast)
3) more work on angled fronts
Any other potential areas to look at?
