Jane Simmons-Moake has been writing articles about distance handling for at least seven years. Among my old Clean Run articles are many articles from her "Unleashing Velcro" and "Distance Challenge" series. Recently, I purchased her book, Unleashing the Velcro Dog, and I certainly would recommend it to anyone who is interested in improving their distance skills.
A few evenings ago, I ran across this interesting set of exercises from Ms Simmons-Moake's May, 2008, "Distance Challenge." I decided to set up the course and see if I might gain some insight on how to get Belle to turn at a distance. The difficulties we encountered on the first Flying Squirrel Exercise certainly pounded home the fact that I'm pretty much at a loss on how to accomplish this on my own. I set up this course and worked the first three exercises.
In the video, Belle and I try the first four exercises. Take note, I actually set the bars in the jumps for a change.
