Training Running Contacts with Stride Regulators by Barb Davis

Training Running Contacts with Stride Regulators
Barb Davis

Barb Davis, multiple-time national champion with wins in both AKC and USDAA competition and six-time AKC/USA team member, takes you step by step through her Sheltie's entire contact training process—including preliminary work. She explains in detail how she used stride regulators to shape Rock-It's running contacts; he was never stopped on either the dogwalk or A-frame. Barb also shows the steps she used to retrain her Border Collie to do a running A-frame. In addition, Barb demonstrates ideas for speeding up contact performance for dogs previously trained to stop on the contact, and discusses the pros and cons of training a running contact.
