I LEARNED THE VALUE of using lines early and often as a goof-proof communication tool.
MY DOGS earned titles quickly, rarely failed, and earned admirable scores regardless of their breed or background.
I INSIST MY STUDENTS use them, too. I know they can be a “pain” — but not nearly as painful as not using them. Lines communicate and build trust and confidence.
WANT TO LEARN how to:
- Make lines?
- Keep lines tangle-free (container method and chain stitch)?
- Proper handling?
- Prepare to direct?
- Tension and tautness?
- Avoid snags (under your dog, your feet, dog jumps, figure 8, tires, etc)
