Around pole to heel.

This is a sign where the dog is sent around the pole and does a 270 turn, returning to the heelside of the handler. Meanwhile the handler does a left turn (90 degrees). For agility handlers, it is like a blind cross. Thanks to Liz Barlow for the inspiration!

There will be two posts which the dog has to go round. There will be an exclusion area the handler cannot go into.

The handler will not be allowed to move over the exclusion line during the performance.

Demonstration.

How to Perform a Clockwise Pivot (Handy Dog Advanced)


Handler faces obstacle and asks dog to put front feet on to it. Dog rotates 360° in a clockwise direction, assuming heel position on the handler’s right side on completion of pivot. Handler may continue to the next obstacle once dog is in position (i.e. no halt or pause required).

Dog must complete pivot without stepping off or exercise is marked IP. One re-try is permitted.

This station will result in a change of sides.


How to Perform an Anticlockwise Pivot (Handy Dog Advanced)

RAISED 360° ANTI-CLOCKWISE PIVOT – CHANGE SIDES

Handler faces obstacle and asks dog to put front feet on to it. Dog rotates 360° in an anti-clockwise direction, assuming heel position on the handler’s left side on completion of pivot. Handler may continue to the next obstacle once dog is in position (i.e. no halt or pause required).

Dog must complete pivot without stepping off or exercise is marked IP. One re-try is permitted.

This station will result in a change of sides.


How to Perform a Single Go-Round (Handy Dog Advanced)

Handler sends the dog around a cone or similar obstacle (at least 900 mm high). 

This sign will always be married to an appropriate Call Front and Finish sign.

One re-try is permitted on this exercise.

This station may result in a change of side and/or change of direction.
