This video shows two of the Open exercises. The first is the dreaded Drop on Recall, the killer for many looking to earn the CDX title. We do it now in at different distances. In my living room it’s short but we also do it outside at a greater distance. It’s important to vary the distance frequently to keep the dog sharp and instantly responsive.
Next is the Retrieve on the Flat. Again short distance, but our form is perfect. She waits for the cue and I give ONLY a verbal cue. I’ve had to work very hard on myself not to move anything when I give the cue. We are both looking straight ahead at the dumbbell. Good job to both of us!
