Wall training

Since we have decided to change boxes to a flat front style I have begun retraining asher's box following an american technique of wall training. As with everything he took this all in his stride and is doing perfect turns off the wall. He turns completely horizontally and pushes down off the wall which is what I eventually what him to do off the box. We may train some of the team dogs this way but the rest of them I think we will work off a chute and build them up.

Wow, that is one awesome turn - we have a chute and it worked great with Jet's turn - though I need to work on it a little bit more with some stuff Kristian told me (not sure if Jet will understand!).

Good luck with the box training, hope it goes well - it really can shave off so much time - you'll be low 17s before you know it. ;-)
